Will they leave peacefully if they don't get to take all that land in their state that is owned by the federal government when they go?
And just so we're clear, were you referring to public land there?

Why would public lands in Louisianna that are current being administered by the American federal government, continued to be administered that government after those lands are no longer in America?

And after the Spanish-American war, I believe Cuba was a territory for a small number of years. Or was it a possession?

Federal lands don't belong to the state in which they are situated, they belong to all Americans. If a state wishes to secede and take their federally-owned land with them, they'll have to purchase it from the federal government at a fair market price.
