I do believe that these guys had some kind of axe to grind, yeah? Stodgy old Rand McNally of all people printed this map... but I got no idea if they had any dog in this fight, or if they just had a print job to do.
Some historian please tell me about where they were coming from, and maybe a quick gloss of the pros and cons of both sides. I'd be appreciative.
