I know this blog focuses on United States history – which means I do not really discuss Europe much (or anywhere else, really). But I came across this the other day and thought it was a cool idea. It might be interesting if someone with greater technical skills than I made a similar map for Colonial America and the US – from say 1607 to now. If you do…I promise to post it 🙂
By the way, when you watch the video be sure and have the volume turned up. The music is very dramatic…especially when it gets to the unification of Germany. Coincidence? I don’t think so.
