Just stumbled over 2 names that are impossible correct as they refer to modern persons:
- Ernst-Thalman Siedlung(309, 150)
Likely named after Ernst Thälmann(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ernst_Thälmann) who was born 1886. Couldn't find out if it was an older village that was renamed or a new village but the term Siedlung seems to refer to a rather new development so I recommend to remove name and village hexes.

- Rosa-Luxemburg-Siedlung(338, 166)
Named after Rosa Luxemburg(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosa_Luxemburg) who was born 1871.Couldn't find out if it was an older village that was renamed or a new village but the term Siedlung seems to refer to a rather new development so I recommend to remove name and village hexes.

- Last but not least the Schafgraben-Siedlung(875, 361) wasn't named after a person but as it uses the term Siedlung too I guess it was also a new developement, I recommend to remove name and village hexes.

Thanks, Christian. I will give it some thought. Removing villages could leave some units out in the open. I will make a notice if I remove the villages in a future update.

Thanks.
Couldn't find out more but the current architecture and setup of the Ernst-Thälmann-Siedlung is likely from the 1920's, just like the Rosa-Luxemburg-Siedlung, the Schafgraben-Siedlung is most likely from the 1960's.
But of course there is the chance that a village was at the same spot in 1806, but on thing is clear the names can't be correct.

Another thing:
- Why is the Ilm river between Weimar and the Salle river only depicted as stream? From Lettow-Vorbeck it seems that the Prussians where interested in its crossings, for example Hohenlohe order the Ilm to be crossed by parts of his forces at Ulrichshalben(123,70) what would not have been necessary when the river would have been so shallow like the game currently depicts it.
There are other example like Saxon cavalry wanted to cross the ilm at Dennstedt(96,180).
