How the States Got Their Shapes

How the States Got Their Shapes

Available on iTunes, HISTORY Vault, Prime Video
Every shape on the map tells a story about our past. Why does Oklahoma have a panhandle? Because of shifting borders for slavery. Why does Missouri have a boot? Because of a massive earthquake. History goes beyond the observable in How the States Got Their Shapes to reveal America’s unique geography, political and social history.
Starring Brian Unger
