Huh..  I have always been under the impression that the state borders
were set to the center line (or one bank) of the river at the time
they were established and would remain there, even if the river moved.
 Most of the USGS Topo maps agree with my impression (look up and down
the MS River...) so I've never really thought to question it.

Anybody know otherwise?
