How the States Got Their Shapes

Show Summary

Correspondent Brian Unger crisscrosses the country covering the history of the geographic, cultural, economic and political forces which have determined the shapes of our states - and how these forces are still at work today. Through an entertaining mix of beautiful, high-definition photography and easy-going, humorous interviews, Brian examines the forces that divided us and marked us as "apart" - on the map - while bringing us all a bit closer together in the process.

    Thank god for History Channel for creating shows that enrich out minds instead of insulting it. This is easily one of the most insightful and provoking in the schedule. While "Pawn Stars" and "American Pickers" may give us stories behind objects, this serires pulls the lost tales of history out from something we never see... except on a map. We get to hear about the characters who created the country and the decisions that shaped our states. It's fascinating and entertaining, and Brian Unger with his wit and observations don't let it get boring. I love this series!moreless
