A hundred-year boundary war between Missouri and Iowa, cause of
the ludicrous "honey war" of 1839, ends on New Year's eve when 200
acres of Missouri land goes to Iowa and 2,000 Iowa acres are given to

boundary between the two states. Map shows the river's present course,
while dotted linos indicate the route 50 years ago.
