The whole point was to take land from two states not just one to make it fair... which is why it's dumb they gave Virginia their piece back -Today's edition of Orange being mad about things that happened over 100 years ago.

I’m still mad that we didn’t put it on the Delaware River.

No way in hell I'm the only person who didn't know this

I think I first learned about it in undergrad. In a book. I know it was before using the internet to learn about history was normalized. This would have been c. 2001. A that point, I used the internet primarily for instant news, email, and forums kind of like this.

I always assumed it was a square shape, I'll be honest. It just made sense looking at it.
