HASH(0x986edf0c) out of 5 stars Carroll leaves no detail untouched and no word unwritten and this reads like an academic study Aug. 19 2014
By Tom in NH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an extremely detailed history of the treaties that established the eastern border between British North America (Canada) and the newly formed United States. Mr. Carroll leaves no detail untouched and no word unwritten and this reads like an academic study. However, with a bit of patience, the lay reader can enjoy it as well.

And the story itself is fascinating: Establishing our common boundary began with men pouring over crude maps in Europe, then having surveyors try to locate key landmarks despite conflicting facts on the ground. Today's border could very well have been different. Imagine Plattsburgh, Quebec, instead of NY. Over 8,000 square miles of prime Maine timber are US territory but might have been Canada had negotiations gone differently.
