Presents the United States settling into its current-day configuration following the expansion brought on by the acquisitions from Mexico and the tumult of the Civil War. The northwest is still unfinished, the northern portion of Idaho split between Washington and Montana, and the Dakotas still joined, and a few other anomalies.
