Slavery and the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War

From the New York Times, one of the most important maps of the Civil War and one of the most visually striking: the varying concentrations of slaves across the South. Abraham Lincoln loved the map and consulted it often; it even appears in a famous 1864 painting of the president and his cabinet.
