I have seen it said that the change from United States are to United States
is took place
around the Civil War, and signaled the change in concepts from the U.S. as a
loose federation of states to the U.S. as an essentially unitary government. I
believe one of the pundits of the Civil War TV series said this, but I do not
know the underlying research.
