In the United States, the meridian 100° west of Greenwich passes through North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. The meridian 100° west of Greenwich forms the eastern border of the Texas panhandle with Oklahoma (which traces its origin to the Adams-Onís Treaty in 1819 which settled the border between New Spain and the United States between the Red River and Arkansas River).
