Charge 7
 
 
Mostly it was the New Yorkers who tried to claim us as part of them. They're still refered to as "Guilders" here and it remains the worst thing you can call someone - even worse than "flatlander". New York and New Hampshire made such a fuss over trying to make us part of them that we decided to call ourselves our own land and were pretty much ignored by the Continental Congress for doing so. When we threatened to become part of Canada they paid attention and we became the 14th state.

Go to Juarez, Nuevo Laredo, Reynoso one time and you'll know why.
Good old Juarez. I spent many a night there when I was stationed at Ft. Bliss (El Paso,TX). I remember every time that I walked over the bridge across the Rio Grande. I can't say I remember how I got back every time though

I grew up just east of El Paso. Juarez has always been a tad different.
