The digital Paullin arrives at what seems like a fortuitous moment. In recent years, scholars have paid increasing attention to the spatial aspects of history, using sophisticated Geographic Information Systems technology to reveal previously unseen patterns of change. The Richmond lab’s 2012 Visualizing Emancipation project, for example, plots out intricate interactions between federal policy, the Union and Confederate Armies, and thousands of enslaved people, illuminating how liberation unfolded on the ground.
At the same time, other researchers are taking a fresh look at old maps, exploring how they represent not just changes in the nation’s boundaries and places, but also deeper shifts in its self-understanding
