Mark Hathaway's curator insight, September 17, 2015 9:00 AM

This map is an excellent resource in show the evolution of colonial claims to North America.. It is fascinating to watch all the political changes that have occurred on the continent in over the past 500 years. The biggest change is the evolutions of the United Sates from a small city state like nation to an empire on both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. This is also an extremely sad story to be told from this map. The loss and destruction of Native Americans is next to slavery is  the greatest sin of America. This map tells the complex story of our Continent.

Watching this animated gif of how political control over North America evolved over the centuries is incerdibly interesting from the perspective of a historian. Seeing land control shift in tandem with major global events like the American Revolution, the Louisiana Purchase, and the Civil War allows one to visualize history and see its impact on the land. However, without any knowledge of the historical events that impacted the changes in contol over the land, it is challenging to appreciate this gif and its incredible insight.

The most striking part of this animation was around 1808 when the Federal Republic of Central America had claims to land in Mexico. I had never heard of the Federal Republic of Central America and it’s interesting that at one point Central America was united. Mexico also controlled much more land farther north than they do today, so the consequences of the Mexican-American War are pretty apparent. England seemed to hold territory in North America until about 1905, which shows how powerful their empire was. Since they were able to hold territory on land that was surrounded by independent countries, they prove their ambition could pay off. North America also never faced occupation by any countries outside of Europe, since Russia is also technically part of Europe. Both Asia and Africa had the potential to attempt to colonize North America eventually, but ultimately Europeans got there first and never left. It’s also interesting that France had control over a large part of the continent and surrendered their claims the earliest. Not only that, but the only region of the country that still has allegiances to France is Quebec, even though they had settlers in a much larger area.
