This is a historic map of the United States of America, from 1866. It offers an unprecedented window into the past of our great country, which at the time, had only 35 million inhabitants. 1866 was an interesting year for the USA. As the Reconstruction era, following the Civil War, had just begun, and Tennessee became the first U.S. state to be readmitted to the Union. More importantly, The United States Congress overwhelmingly passed the Civil Rights Act which was the first federal legislation to protect the rights of African-Americans. It is also fascinating to see the shapes of states of the USA, but also territories around the USA, for instance, “British America”, today’s Canada, which was almost annexed that same year, had the Annexation Bill of 1866 passed. This gorgeous piece of map art will be a welcome present for any history aficionado, a gracious housewarming gift, or interesting wall decor in a private space, or a professional one.
