Explaining the Canadian/U.S. Border

I've really enjoyed the "Borderlines" series by Frank Jacobs in The New York Times.  (He explains that he "writes about cartography, but only the interesting bits.")  In a recent installment, he explains the history of the U.S./Canadian border west of Lake of the Woods.  The border is popularly understood to run a straight line along the 49th parallel for 1,260 miles, but the real story is more interesting.

If you like that piece, you should also check out his work at Big Think, where his blog series is called "Strange Maps."
