How the States Got Their Shapes

How well do average Americans know their country? Brian Unger hits the road to uncover the history hidden in the lines and contours that make up the U.S. map through man-on-the-street quizzes and head-to-head competitions. Contestants battle to win some cash, show their state pride and display their knowledge of U.S. geography as they reveal how the country took shape.
