The jurisdictional dispute was interesting to read about. I knew there were issues with agreeing exactly where borders lay in the past or people not realizing they had crossed the border. I was unaware of any instances where states outright declared they we're enforcing their laws in other states territories.

I would be interested in reading other examples of such debates if you happened to know of any


This actually happened in te 19thh century:

TL;DR, Michigan and Ohio almost fought over who got the city of Toledo.


That's fascinating. I can't even imagine what the federal government's response to an event like this would be nowadays. Arresting the governors? Deploying the us army against the state militias?
