This internet activity is based on the Examining the Evidence feature found on page 7 of The American Pageant, Thirteenth Edition. Or you can view the feature here.

Maps are informative artifacts for historians because people's maps depict one conception of their reality. To investigate early maps of America further, go to the American Memory Project and examine the map created in 1562.

Compare this map to the one in your textbook and answer the following questions (use the questions in your textbook to help you think about this map):
  1. Identify three similarities between the 1540 and 1562 maps.
  2. Identify three differences between the 1540 and 1562 maps.
  3. Which map is more accurate? Why?
