The United Statesmarker claimed a number of islands as insular areasmarker under the Guano Islands Act of 1856. Only the ten administered as the US Minor Islands and one each annexed by American Samoa and Hawaii remain as possesions of the United States. Any other unresolved claims if they exist are dormant, and have not been contested by the United States in many years.
