Blockade-running is neither considered an honorable enterprise nor a villainous practice, it is simply a means of trade during times of war and its occurrence during the American Civil War was no different. As the war divided our country, blockade-runners kept the borders busy with commerce.

Gran Quivira Limestone Lithic Database (1985)
This dataset is for the limestone lithics excavated in the 1985 field season at Gran Quivira. The sample was large in size and we felt we had learned enough about limestone lithics that the 1986 lithics were not analyzed and we likely were not as careful collecting them as in 1985.
Gran Quivira Lithics Database (1986)
This database is the chipped stone excavated in the 1984-86 field seasons at Gran Quivira Pueblo. N.B.: although it is not a column in this database, some analyses using these data would have recoded all obsidian as '1', all local chert types as '2', and all quartzite as '3.'
The International Boundary Commission Monuments – 1848 to Today. (2017)

Since the inception of the formal IBC in 1889, the present International Border from the Pacific Ocean to El Paso, Texas has increased to 276 international border...
