How Maps Reveal (and Conceal) History
Please join us as we celebrate the publication of Susan Schulten’s book, A History of America in 100 Maps. Across five centuries, America has been defined through maps. Whether handmaidens of diplomacy, tools of statecraft, instruments of reform, or advertisements, maps document particular moments in time but also shape the course of history.
