I believe the Texas area was first claimed by Spain, then France, then Mexico. Texas then became independent, then joined the USA, then seceded and joined the CSA. Finally rejoined the USA after the War between the States.

Took me a little while to think of that one as well but after thinking a bit it became obvious. Nobody else has controlled Texas since it joined the USA.

Find it historically a bit strange call Confederate states a "country". At least according to modern interpretation of the international laws they would not count.

Why is that? It had international relationships with multiple countries including Britain and France (the two most important countries in the world). Applying modern standards to past incidents is a fool's errand.

Other countries traded with the Confederates but none formally recognized their sovereignty.

Interesting SeaNomad..... considering that the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA recognized the REPUBLIC of TEXAS as an independent nation March 6 1837. The Republic of Texas opened an embassy in Washington D.C. in 1841.

This should be reworded: "the six countries." The Confederacy was never a recognized country, not by the Union or any other nation; perhaps reword it to say "countries/entities," or, just remove the CSA as an answer, period.

I have changed it from "countries" to "nations". Why would I remove it as an answer? It is what it is, like it or not.

Removing CSA is not an option. It's not "Five Flags Over Texas". Whether or not you consider the CSA a legit country, the flag still counts.

It wasn't recognized as a sovereign nation by other countries, but that decision is more from political concerns than accurate taxonomy. The Confederacy had its own president, printed its own money, issued passports, patrolled its borders, and traded with other countries. They had their own army and navy. During the Civil War they were independent from the USA and did not obey any superior governmental entity. I have no sympathy with the CSA or its cause, but for these reasons I think it would be accurate to say it did exist as an independent nation-state. If Taiwan is a country, the CSA was one.

Fantastic quiz! I got them all with 0:56 remaining at 2:22:10 PM on March 6, 2019. I have now reached 997 points. I actually remembered to guess the Confederate States fifth, and then I guessed Texas itself last.
