History Sandwiched In: Relief Maps at the University of Wisconsin

Relief maps are 3-D models of our terrain in miniature. Crafted between 1865 and 1945, the relief maps in the University of Wisconsin-Madison collection document the American struggle to understand our new relationships to the land after decades of rapid change by exploration, settlement, war and scientific advances. Geographer Melanie McCalmont tells the human stories behind the relief maps: expeditions and earthquakes, bankruptcy and battlefields, governments and glaciers.
