I disagree. people just call the two different regions by the same name (though as a Californian, I've never heard of the mid-west being called that before). Neither is very common but if someone was making a map of the US Middle America I'd think they'd call it the Mid-West.
Honestly the map does appear to have an 18th century theme going. The images, the title, and the legend contribute to this. I'm not sure if it's a big deal or not.
I do agree with using local lingo for the names.
