Irredentism Ridge

There's a teeny-tiny street in the richest neighborhood of Washington, DC named Irredentism Ridge Road.

Does Irredentism Ridge celebrate the general concept of irredentism? Or...does Maryland claim the ridge is part of the eternal Marylandian homeland and want to annex it? I don't know, and would appreciate hearing from anyone who does.

Whoa, a new word.

Had to look this one up.

You so fucking challenge me.

And I'll forget this one in a matter of minutes.

Hey I was living across the park, on Davis Place, only a month ago. Sweet!

Does the Vice President's mansion happen to lie in that area? Because that's some territory that I'd like to lay a claim to.

Interesting...I just saw an "Irredentism Ridge Road" on a map of Indianaplis in a very NOT-rich part of town, and decided to look it up. I'll let you know if I find out anything else about the one here in Indy.
