Readers will know my love of maps, and fascination with Monroe’s Doctrine that all the west was American.  In the video above I can find both brought together by the wonderful Derek Watkins in his “Visualizing US Expansion through Post Offices” showing the spread of Post Offices across the nation through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, which I found at vimeo.com.

Wonderful… yet strangely insane.
