U.S. States Logic Puzzle

Can you untangle the clues to determine which US state goes where in this tricky logic puzzle? No state appears more than once in this puzzle. For borders, only land borders are counted, and no water/maritime borders are allowed. You will run into the word palindrome. A palindrome is something that reads the same forwards and backward.
Great Lake States are landlocked!
No guesswork is needed to complete this puzzle!
Inspired by unknown 2000's Countries version.

Okay. New York and Tennessee were the ones you got, right? Then the clue specifies that all of the squares bordering C2 must border Tennesse, and another clue says all states in row D must have two words. And the only two-word state bordering Tennessee is North Carolina.
