Mackwitz's map of pig-related nicknames of U.S. states in 1884.

UPDATE: Between the time when this was written and when it came up in the queue, Frank Jacobs over at Strange Maps has lent his considerable talents to the discussion and analysis of this map. As usual, he handles this with far more aplomb than I could muster.
