Her Home State, Too
So, I guess Kids Today™ don't have to Bound things. Or do history, much, for that matter. The Georgia native picked Georgia as the last Confederate state to secede, which also bordered six others. Georgia only borders five - five total. And it went out in the first group of seven, an original Confederate state.
The answer is Tennessee (last out, first back in), which borders eight states total, though two weren't Confederate. (And yes, I can still Bound Tennessee - thanks, Mrs Neff!)
