You need to change the keyboard layout, not the keyboard. You likely set it
for another language. Go to System, Preferences, Keyboard and click on the
Layouts tab. Change whatever is there to USA.

I found the problem. It was set for Canada however after doing some
more digging I found I could change it to English US and the display example
was exactly what I was looking for. I set it for English US and then
deleted the Canada setting. It works fine now.

Canada English should have the same keyboard layout as US English.
Perhaps you had selected French Canada? If so, then all bets would be off....
