In the past few months, a few friends and I have been increasingly encountering early systems of measurement used in the United States. These systems encompass increments including the Rod and the Chain as well as the Vara. Accordingly, we are curious to discover whether there has been any work published describing these systems (or other important systems) in general terms and/or whether there have been works that specifically describe their impact on the American landscape. We'd greatly appreciate any sources pointed out by the contributers to H-Urban. Thanks, Sean M. O'Donnell University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee email@example.com
