The Inca Empire

The Incas ruled an area of land approximately 3,500 long.  The distance from Hartford, Connecticut to Los Angeles, California is only 2,900 miles.  They controlled a land mass of 135,000 square miles, or approximately 24 times the size of Connecticut.  At the time of the greatest expansion (approximately 1530), it was the largest nation in the world.

If you look straight across on this map you will find the Inca capital of "Cuzco".  Just north of that is where Machu Pichu" is located. (not shown on map)
