Missouri was a Union state?

So many mainstream history books, historians, teachers and media outlets refer to Missouri as a “Union” or a “Border” state. However, this 1860 census map of “The South”, includes Missouri, Kentucky, Maryland and Delaware.

Note that it says “sold for the benefit of the sick and wounded soldiers of the U.S. Army”

Missouri, Kentucky, Maryland and Delaware were occupied states, forced under the heel of the federal government.

This census map was sold to raise money for sick and wounded U.S. soldiers by marketing  a map of states that it had conquered or was in the process of conquering. – Webmaster
