  • Support. Sounds logical to me. Grutness|hello? 11:06, 15 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose. History articles are generally of the nation not of the state. For instance Category:Canadian military history covers many events that occurred before the state of Canada came into existence. - SimonP 16:43, Feb 15, 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. This following the style guide of avoided adjectives related to country/nationality whenever possible. For the pre-country stuff, they should be in their own category then, with a note in the category saying, for instance for Canada, "For pre-1867 history, see Military history of British North America" or something similar.

  • Support. Note that pre-history is often included in "History of" articles as well. For example, History of Canada includes pre-nation history. – flamurai (t) 22:53, Feb 15, 2005 (UTC)
  • Oppose It's much more use to have things under current countries with subcategories where necessary. The British/Irish/UK history categories are a mess with masses of misallocation (or rather failure to allocate in accordance with faulty policies) due to failure to follow this principal.
