EVENT: NATIONAL ARCHIVES presents Andro Linklater discussing Measuring America: How an Untamed Wilderness Shaped the United States and Fulfilled the Promise of Democracy. The most urgent problem facing the newly independent United States was how to pay for the war that won its freedom. Its greatest asset was land, but that first had to be measured out and mapped, and a uniform set of measurements had to be chosen. Linklater tells the story of why America has ended up with its unique system of weights and measures--the American Customary System--and how this has shaped our country and culture.
