After you have completed the reading assignment for chapter 9, examine 2 maps related to Africa during the long 19th century. The first is a map of pre-colonial Africa in 1800 (Links to an external site.). The second is a Map of Africa in 1912. (Links to an external site.)
Make sure you read the map titles and explanatory notations, then the position of borders, and the legend (or key).
Once you have examined the maps, write a response (150-300 words) that answers the following:
