US must not forget its history of dispossession
Claudio Saunt writes about the dispossession of Native American lands in an article for Aeon magazine. (See his time-lapse map!)
"Acre by acre, the dispossession of native peoples made the United States a transcontinental power. To visualise this story, I created 'The Invasion of America', an interactive time-lapse map of the nearly 500 cessions that the United States carved out of native lands on its westward march to the shores of the Pacific."
