Annenberg Learner: Major U.S. Geographical Features

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. What did the Mississippi River have to do with the Treaty of Paris after the Revolutionary War? How did the river systems in the east affect the American economy? Having a good grasp of the geography of the United States is imperative to understanding its history.
