For your amazement and amusement, here is a 1932 map of Santa Monica, California. Casino Gardens was a dance hall. Bandleader Tommy Dorsey bought it in 1942. Harry James and Tommy's brother Jimmy later became partners with him. And there were "nude sun baths" – Wooh!

Hawai'i and Alaska do not border any states. Few people know that. Anyway, here is an 1837 map of Hawai'i. Apparently the Pacific Ocean was not blue back then.

That's pretty trippy. It's cool to see the way that the north took the Mississippi River to split the south and interrupt their supplies and transport.

Those bizarre little skirmishes that darted through various states was interesting. I wonder if there was Benny Hill music playing in the background.
