Description:
This world map, published primarily for educational purposes, locates missionary activity in the United States and around the world. It also provides a global perspective for understanding the origins of the African slave trade, which had been banned in the United States since 1808, and the rising momentum of the anti-slavery cause. The map was prepared by Joseph Tracy who served as the secretary of the Massachusetts Colonization Society, an affiliate of the American Colonization Society. Reflecting his corresponding interest in foreign missions, he located an American mission in Liberia.
