NOTE.-Authorities disagree on a number of the dates and place of settlement of states. The population and areas of states are taken from the United States Census Report of 1890. The total area of the United States, including Alaska (577,390), New Mexico (122,580), Utah (84,970), Arizona (113,020), Indian Territory (31,400), Oklahoma (39,030), and the District of Columbia (70) is about 3,580,242 square miles. "This area," says Lippincott, "is to some extent conjectural, and the figures of different authorities vary somewhat." " The latest estimate in Chambers' Encyclopedia (New Edition) makes the total area of the United States, with Alaska, 3,602,990 square miles; while Professor Whitney in the Encyclopædia Britannica (New Edition) gives the total area at 3,550,549 square miles.
