A map of the vote that authorized the war in Iraq? Blue would be two yeas, red would be two nays, and green is split.

Very good. DC is green because they didn't get a vote.

Political parties of Senators at some specific point in the past, I'm guessing? 1960s, maybe? Votes to authorize the Vietnam War (with red as yes)?

Only two Senators (Gruening and Morse) voted against the Gulf of Tonkin resolution.

I sort of meant later funding since Tonkin didn't really authorize the war.

Do think about elections, actually.

(Edit: Fixed Nevada.)

And another.

Whichever candidate won the majority of states bordering the state in question.  Grey is a tie.

Too easy, I guess. (I even counted Alaska and Hawaii as bordering the West Coast states and each other to prevent both from being grey.)

The map for 2000 is almost identical. The only changes are that Arizona and Minnesota become toss-ups, and Maine becomes Republican.

Europe some time between 1856 (end of the Crimean War) and 1859 (beginning of Italian unification).

It looks like the 2008 trend map.

Indeed. But it isn't the exact 2008 trend map. I'm guessing some long-term trend.

Reasonably close, but you need to be more specific.

Anyway, it's continuous Presidential elections of trending. (Grey means the trends were different in 2004 and 2008.) Illinois has trended towards the Democrats in every election since 1980, inclusive. West Virginia and Oklahoma have trended towards the Republicans in every election since 1988, inclusive.
