This striking pictorial map reproduction by Stanley Turner features the United States with vignette illustrations around the edges depicting historical moments in the history of the USA, as well as WWII events which involved U.S. military forces. Within each state are featured natural resources which were used for the war effort, any military bases located in the state, industries, state flags, flowers and capitals.
An inset chart in the lower left quadrant features detailed statistics regarding Army and Navy Personnel, Naval Fleets, Additional Military Camps and Locations, etc. In the upper right quadrant is an inset map of the various ‘Ocean Fronts’.
The original map is rather scarce and is known to be in the holdings of three U.S. libraries.
What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
