Summary
"Mapping the landscape of U.S. history is crucial to understanding the diverse people, the many cultures, and the embattled conflicts that share a common geography and continue to shape the nation. From the ancient migrations of Asian peoples to the Great Migration of African Americans, from Spanish explorations to U.S. interventions, from Civil War battles to civil rights struggles, the story of the United States is a vivid picture of historical change." "Historical Atlas of the United States takes this vibrant story of conflict and change and, using full color maps, crystallizes it for the reader into a clearly visualized history. Its scope is as diverse and wide-ranging as the country it depicts. It brings in focus the nation-shaping forces that are its national heritage: political, imperial, economic, environmental, demographic, and cultural history. Whether the often remembered events of World War II or the often forgotten Pueblo revolts of 1680, whether the Emancipation Proclamation or the impact of Hollywood, whether the routes of colonial traders and trappers or the routes of the contemporary drug trade, Historical Atlas of the United States charts both the dramatic, sweeping events and the slow, enduring developments that together contribute to the character of the nation."--BOOK JACKET
