“E Pluribus Unum” tells the complex story of the shaping of the United States through historical maps from 1600 to 1800. During this time period, European empires claimed ownership of territories which had been populated by American Indian nations for thousands of years. The European nations used maps as political tools in the race to extend their imperial territories in North America. Centuries of wars, colonization, and political treaties shaped the modern United States. Visit this exhibit to see how the territorial claims for North America changed over time. This important collection of historical documents offers a fascinating chronology of early American history from multiple European perspectives.
