Episode Summary


Will cultural rivalries lead to the break-up of some states - or to the formation of new ones? Several states are almost divided in half - such as the great divide between northern Florida's cowboy culture and the more cosmopolitan society of the south. Likewise, some of the more rustic citizens of Maine are quick to distance themselves from the city-dwellers along the Massachusetts border - and would gladly be rid of them! The cultural disconnects were so great in California that some observers claim it took World War II to hold it together.
