The Invasion of America

As my students know I've been on a map and GIS kick.  Some people have asked me what historians would do with GIS.  One answer can be found with the work of my students in the Digital History class where we began mapping the SBU cemetery.

I would also point you towards the story Interactive Time-Lapse Map Shows How the U. S. Took More than 1.5 Billion Acres from Native Americans in Slate's history column, The Vault.  You can visit the Invasion of America webpage directly to see more, including the original source maps that were used to make the interactive map.  Below is the video version of the map from YouTube.
