Following the Frontier Line and more
The US Census Bureau has a couple of cool interactive graphs. The one above allows you to follow the movement of the frontier between 1790 and 1890 by moving the slide bar at the bottom. Another graph allows a student to follow the shift of population to the west and to south by moving the slide bar at the bottom. Thanks to my colleague, Jeff Feinstein, for sending me the the links.
