Abstract:
The original boundary line between North and South Carolina was established in 1735. Because of confusion between the states about the exact location of the line, it was re-drawn in 1928 by George Syme of North Carolina and Monroe Johnson of South Carolina. Using evidence found near the boundary, the two were able to recover the original line. Eight-inch granite posts serve as markers along the boundary, set at two mile intervals.

Abstract:
In 1789, North Carolina gave its western lands, which eventually became the state of Tennessee, to the federal government to settle debts.
