What can maps tell us about the past? How do they affect the way we view events such as the American Revolution? The Norman B. Leventhal Map Center at the Boston Public Library has a new, traveling exhibition called We Are One: Mapping America’s Road from Revolution to Independence. We Are One seeks to change the way we look at and explore the tumultuous events that led 13 colonies to break away from Great Britain and forge a new nation. Michelle LeBlanc, Director of Education and Public Programming at the Leventhal Map Center joins us to explore maps as historical documents and this amazing new exhibit.
