I thought this article explaining the Southern border and its origins as well as its modifications was very interesting. I learned more about the original construction of borders, as well as the intentions of them.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
