What caused the population boom around Vicksburg in 1800?

That map must show US citizens only? There were plenty of people (You know, Indians, Spanish, French) from sea to shining sea in 1790. The key says “residents”

The late 1890s into the 1910s show some depopulation in the Mississippi Delta Counties. Mechanization replaces human farmers.

Interesting map, thanks.

When did they start gerrymandering counties?

Looks like no one wanted to live in Utah or Nevada until about 1990

The ingalls family in Minnesota during the 1870s had to have been some lonesome hard winters

Interesting that our family farm fell back into the 0-2 bracket in the last 20 years.

Who were the poor suckers living in the Everglades in the early 1800s?

...or Oklahoma was specifically set aside as Indian Territory by the US government after the Indian Removal Act of the 1830s.

Anyone notice how Harris County (Houston) exploded after the hurricane hit Galveston in 1900?
