The last glacial maximum angled down into northern PA, across central OH,
IN and IL, then cut NW.  There was evidently a large unglaciated area in
central Wisconsin (called the Driftless Area).  Your idea may be right.
But today tridentata occurs mostly in the south Atlantic coastal plain.

I still think it legitimate to question its relationship to setosa/hookeri.
