A "Slave Map" is a map that was produced to graphically illustrate the relative proportion of free and slave populations in a state or county. Some maps used colors to convey this information, while others used a gray scale, with the darker areas representing areas with proportionally more slaves.  For your research and perusal, we have compiled an extensive collection of original Slave Maps.  Also included are maps that simply show Northern and Southern States in different shades, or simply show "The South", with the slave population presented in tabular form on the Legend of the map.
