State boundaries of America; how, why and when American state lines were formed.


State boundaries of America; how, why and when American state lines were formed.

Hansen, Tegan and Jerry Hansen.

Heritage Books


210 pages




This volume gathers excerpts of primary source documents showing how the current state boundaries of the United States were determined, including royal charters, royal grants, international treaties, and US statutes. The intent is to delineate the source of each state line component, codify them as natural or otherwise, provide how early each state boundary was a real boundary before the state was officially admitted to the union, and include references for further study. No maps are provided and the compilers suggest the accompanying use of a historical atlas.
