...thanks to the extensive archive section on Barry Ruderman's web site:




New question... Can anyone explain those absurd boundaries? For example,
the NC/VA boundary has always been an east--->west line of latitude, and
had actually been surveyed in 1728 and 1749, well before these bizarre maps
were printed. Though of lesser interest to me, I find it most peculiar that
Maryland and New Jersey each have shoelines on the Great Lakes.

Thanks in advance for enlightening me.
