Anybody else catch this over the weekend? Really good program! And they started out with quite the rivalry (Ohio and Michigan)...

Hopefully they'll run it again...I just did a search via Dish Network and don't see it coming up anytime in the next week. I'm now starting to watch "America The Story of Us" on History.

I saw it. Interesting on the states that didn't become one. I think the state of Franklin should have gotten to stay. I think Michigan won the battle with Ohio, especially when you look at it today. The UP for Toledo.

Was hoping they would go into Indiana a little more; since there is a little controversy on the western border of the state with Illinois. Depending where you start on the Wabash river Chicago could have been part of Indiana. If they started at the mouth of the river into the Ohio River and went straight north it would have included Chicago. Although the old Illinois capital is now across the Mississippi.
