Mapping American Executions
1,231 people have now been executed in the USA. Time has released an animated map showing the total number of executions made in each American state since 1776.
Every Execution in U.S. History in a Single Map allows you to view the history of executions in the US. As you play the animation you can watch as the number of executions spreads westward in the early years of the USA, as the country itself opens up the west.
You can drag the timeline arrow to view the number of executions made in each individual state for any year, or view the cumulative total of executions made in each state over time.
