So this one will be much easier than yesterday’s “plumbago” debacle.

Whie the Mason-Dixon line has now been co-opted to speak of the border between North and South (and the border separating “slave” from “free” states before the Missouri Compromise), it originated as the southern border of Pennsylvania (jutting south to also be the western border of Delaware). It was surveyed between 1763 and 1767 by Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon, as a way of settling the longstanding border dispute between William Penn’s colony (the Quakers) and Lord Calvert’s colony (the Catholics)
