Other map oriented truck graphics include North Dakota...

The "Did you know..." texts from these images:
Ontario: Abolishing slavery decades earlier than the U.S., Canada became a haven for enslaved people seeking freedom. How did "conductors" assist thousands?
North Dakota: Flags of the U.S., Mexico & Canada fly at the monument of the geographic center of North America in Rugby.
Pennsylvania: With President Jefferson's instructions in hand, the Lewis and Clark Expedition set sail down the Ohio River. What role did Philadelphia and Lancaster play in the tireless preparations undertaken for this journey?
