This interactive from Annenberg Learner challenges you to show off your knowledge of twenty important geographical features around the United States. Being able to identify these features is important in understanding the geography of the nation, but is equally important in learning about and understanding our history.

Having a good grasp of the geography of the United States is imperative to understanding its history.
