Kinda OT: The Spread of Slavery in the U.S.

Thought about posting this in the history forum, but as it doesn't get a lot of traffic, figured I'd post it here.

Anyway, Vox posted a gif of a map created by Prof Lincoln Mullen of George Mason University showing the spread of slavery in the United States from 1790 through 1860. Pretty interesting.



You can see Mullen's map here. It not only shows the number of slaves, but also the number of free African-Americans during this period.

It reminded me of the book I read last year by Edward Baptist - The Half Has Never Yet Been Told - which explained how slavery expanded.

Be careful. You didn't adequately express how evil slavery is in your post. Some members of the forum may become enraged that you have an opinion that doesn't include at least 4 mentions of the evil of the practice. For what are we if we can't wag our fingers at the world of old and make ourselves out, bravely, as the morally superior?

That's pretty cool.  I saw a time advance map of all the wars on earth since 1000ad. Was pretty cool. Sure showed how much those Europeans liked to duke it out.

Since all current violence is attributed to Muslims, shouldn't you have said christians duke it out.

But, you map is incomplete as it, apparently, does not include indentured servants.

Between 1/3 to 1/2 of all emigrants to the New World during the Colonial period came as indentured servants. Nearly all were white Europeans. They usually signed a contract for 4 to 7 years, but that contract could be extended for transgressions such as trying to run away or breaking the law. They were treated as bad, or worse than the later African Slaves.
