The Abolitionist Map of America
PBS has teamed up with historypin to create the Abolitionist Map of America. The Abolitionists was a three part documentary from PBS which explored the history of the abolitionist movement in America.
The Abolitionist Map of America allows you to explore archival images, documents and videos related to abolitionism on an interactive map. You can discover this multi-media content on the map by location and by date. The map also includes a number of curated tours.
The tours section of the map provides the routes of a number of walking tours for Boston, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Charleston and Rochester. These walking tours provide routes taking in a number of locations important to the abolitionist movement in each of the cities. The mapped tours also include the archival media featured in the rest of the map.
