Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, France

Saint-Pierre and Miquelon are the last piece of French territory in North America.

Originally a French settlement, the British took control of the islands in 1713, 1778, 1794, 1803, and 1815, with the French taking back possession between each of these occupations. Eventually, the French took control of the islands once again in 1816, this time permanently.
