That's 2 out of 50 state trivia quizzes done. I completed my home state, and now this, one of its neighbors. Good thing my family took me to visit those mansions owned by the chemical company family (no spoilers for those who look in the comments section for answers) during the past three years.

Shouldn't it say "part of the boundary between Maryland and Delaware"? It marks the (approximate) North/South boundary, but not the east/west boundary, I believe.

Agreed. M&D surveyed the north-south line, down to the "Transpeninsular Line," which had been set a decade or so earlier. M&D's line intersects the transpeninsular line at its midpoint, with the eastern half of the east-west line forming the southern boundary of Delaware.
