A Geographic 20th Century America

In the early 20th century, the United States wasn’t all one big clump of land that moved as a whole. Different states had different challenges and successes, depicted in this customization of the country’s map. Whether it be a bump in the road or a highway to success, the states encountered their individual marks to separate them from everyone else.

  1. This map shows very well each state’s accomplishments in the early 20th century. You can see how the east was experiencing technological challenges and successes while the west was experiencing successes in environmental and civil rights issues. This map helps show how the US was progressing in the early 20th century.

  2. I really like how this map gives you a really good idea of where different things happened, it is like how a timeline shows when things happened, this map shows where they happened.

  3. Your map really helps to show all the great things that Americans actually did across the nation. Each state had a special event that was a milestone in American history, and the map helped me to even realize where some of these events took place. Great job!

  4. I’m a visual learner, so I’m immediately drawn to this picture. I also love it because it includes all 50 states! A lot of times when we are learning about certain time periods, we only focus on one or two regions and forget about the other half of the country. But this map shows the activity everywhere.

  5. The US is normally looked at as a grouping of states that function as a whole, but when looked at on a closer scale, the states themselves resemble smaller sovereign countries, each progressing in its own particular region. Your map is a nice representation of the various activity taken by each state during one of the nation’s most prosperous periods in history.

  6. Very cool, Diana. It’s definitely helpful to see what’s happening in a geographic format. You’re debunking the idea that Americans don’t know their surroundings!

  7. It’s nice to see the accomplishments and contributions that each state made. It’s good to focus how everyone is involved, not just the federal government. It also looks cool. Great job!

  8. Your map is very nice and shows the events that took place in the early 1900s in a new light. You did an outstanding job and your work in my opinion shows that a great amount of time was taken to complete this post.
