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.

Only missed the beach - I had heard it before but Redondo was the closest I could come.

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.

Kinda hoping that in a few months you can change the date and take the word "Vice" out of the clue.

I had such a brain freeze and kept typing height instead of elevation. I knew what I meant, but could NOT come up with the word for it. Finally got it in time!

Oh Delaware. I feel like here in Pennsylvania we just consider it an extension of our state, but smaller and with more beaches. Honestly, we should just annex it :)

Fun fact: Colonially speaking, Delaware was governed as part of Pennsylvania from 1682 until 1701, often referred to as the Three Lower Counties of the Delaware River. From 1701 to 1776 they had separate assemblies, but shared a governor.

Delaware celebrates "Separation Day." On June 15th, 1776, Delaware separated formally from Pennsylvania. This was before separating from the UK (but not by much).

Due to the same 12-mile circle around New Castle that defines the border with Pennsylvania, along with changes in the course of the Delaware River over time, Delaware also technically shares a short land border with New Jersey, in addition to just the bridge border.
