A MAP OF ALASKA COMPARED TO THE LOWER-48

This is the best map to start out this map section, it doesn't give any detail but shows the immense territory Alaska covers, as well as the size and location of Alaska to The Lower-48 (States) and the rest of North America.

Alaska is fully one-fifth (1/5) the land mass of the United States, and think on this, it is two-thirds (2/3) the size of the entire Nation of Mexico--that's why we have always considered ourselves more a Country than a State (except for the Government people [way too many] that constantly try to reiterate the fact). Alaska has so much waterfront it accounts for forty percent (40%) of the entire US shoreline. A plane flight in Alaska taken from furthest Western Aleutian Island to the Boundary between S.E. Alaska and British Colombia, Canada would equal a flight from Los Angeles to New York City, and I leave you with this, if Manhattan had the same population density as Alaska, there would be only 14 people on Manhattan Island when you got there...
