The Map-Happy Chaplain
July 26, 2008 1:15 PM   Subscribe

John Henry Wilbrandt Stuckenberg emigrated from Germany to the United States, where he was eventually a Chaplain in the American Civil War. He also really liked maps; in the course of traveling over his lifetime, he collected hundreds of maps, some dating back to the 16th century. [Most maps in Latin]

I want to like this site. I don't understand why they think that their user interface is even remotely reasonable.

Just let me see the damn picture. The whole damn picture. At once. Sheesh.
