How the West Was Won
The Invasion of America is an interactive map of Native American land cession between 1776 and 1887. During this period the United States seized over 1.5 billion acres from the Native Americans.
The map includes a timeline which allows you to view how the United States grew westwards by seizing Native American land through treaties and executive orders. It is possible to search the map by individual Indian Nation. If you click on a tract on the map you can find out the Nation affected and find links to the related treaty and source map overlays.
