I only wish you could stop the automatic progression and step through the various changes at your own pace.

I agree with Noel. It would be nice to have the separate maps published as a slide show or book so we could pause and really look at one before moving on to the next.

I also think that would be a great idea!

For those of us wanting a slower version….the maps initially came from a Wikepedia site and are available there one by one at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Territorial_evolution_of_the_united_states
Enjoy…
