Amazing Arizona Presents: Oh, the Shape We Are In! How Arizona and the Western States Got Their Borders
March 5, 2 p.m.
Ethel H. Berger Center
It is impossible to look at the how the boundaries of Arizona were determined without an understanding of the formation of the United States. So, what are the reasons for states’ shapes? What role does the U.S. land survey begun back in the 1800s have to do with the shape of states? What and who determined the shape of Arizona’s border? How is the name “Butterfield” associated with the borders for Arizona? These and other questions will be answered at this presentation.
