    The American Civil War: Every Day
    (note Sherman's march through Georgia and then up through the Carolinas, beginning around the 4:00 minute mark)



    More detailed legend:
    Dark Blue = United States of America and territories


    Blue = Areas occupied by Union forces.
    Light blue = Gains for that day

    Maroon = Confederate States of America and territories
    Red = Areas occupied by Confederate forces
    Pink = Gains for that Day

    Yellow = Border states / disputed areas.

    I used to hear that the Mason-Dixon Line, which begins on the boundary lines between PA and MD actually separate the north and south. I never confirmed this to be accurate.

    How Far Did Armstrong Moon Walk? Mapping the Lunar Landing

    "On July 20, 1969, Commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin landed on the Moon. Six hours later on July 21, Armstrong stepped out of the lunar module Eagle and became the first human to walk on the moon. Aldrin joined him on the surface, but the two astronauts did not walk far during the span of more than two hours".

    "This map shows the paths Armstrong and Aldrin walked on the surface of the Moon in comparison to the size of a baseball diamond. The map was created by historian Eric Jones and is featured in the book Strange Maps: An Atlas of Cartographic Curiosities by Frank Jacobs. The book is available from the Ball State University Libraries GIS Research and Map Collection (GRMC)".

    “LM” on the map marks the location of the lunar module. Armstrong placed a television camera to the left of the module (between third base and home plate). And the yellow circles mark the location of surface cameras. The larger circles on the map identify craters of various depths".
