comment How many Axis troops fought on D-Day?
@Oldcat: I limited the question to Normandy and France. Actually, the Axis numbers are a bit shadowy, so this question is worth exploring.

comment What is the earliest known writing associating the number three with the dimension of the world?
Perhaps this question could be a better fit for history of science and math, at least if "cleaned up."

comment Historical drivers behind demographics of Indigenous populations in American countries
It would be nice to "migrate" this map to the other question. Too bad it's a duplicate. This questionner actually made a good contribution!

comment Why did Europe not see Roman-era numbers of men participating in battles until the 17th century?
@EvilWashingMachine: The way I'd put it is, is "why couldn't "France" muster more men at Crecy than the Romans at Asculum? And the reason was that even though "France" had 15-20 million people in 1346, it was a collection of feudal states. The French kings actually controlled maybe 4 million people, and fielded an army of 40,000 (1% of its population). Rome, at Asculum controlled 5 million people and fielded an army of 50,000 (also 1%). Hope this answers your question.

comment Did the Southern States make any attempt to secede from the Union through an act of Congress?
You have two questions in one. I would delete the part after "If the Compact Theory does not hold water..."
