Proposed American States That Don't Exist

It is generally known that the United States of America is composed of 50 different states. However, what is not widely known is that there were many proposals for new US states that never came to fruition. If these states had been created, the current inter-state borders of the United States would look very different. Lack of popular support or the refusal of relevant government authorities to grant statehood contributed to the downfall of most of these proposals.
