The Growth of the Union: 1787 to 1959
For the Fourth of July, I decided to make a graphic of the growth of the United States over time.
There are a number of issues with this graphic.
West Virginia is shown with borders, but it is not separate from Virginia until 1861
Kentucky should be shown as part of Virginia until 1972, when they applied to become their own state
Colorado is shown as entering in 1867, but it actually did not join the United States until 1876.
