This is the United States of America! Ain’t it purty? So many different shapes coming together to make one big ole’ quilt for Uncle Sam and Aunt Liberty to snuggle under during the winter months. Looking at it now, you might think the pattern of states’ boarders seems natural and obvious. Like, “Of course they fit together! It would be chaos anyway else!” WELL. That wasn't always the case. In fact, the border of the country and some states have been changed and threatened over our nation's history due to individual states attempting to secede.
