The map shows only fourteen states in 1849 (the original 13 plus Florida and Vermont - it's unclear whether Maine is a separate state or still part of Massachusetts). By 1849, there were already five states west of the Mississippi River: Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas. See more »

One of the many simultaneously racist and clever Warner Bros. cartoons, Bob Clampett's "Wagon Heels" lets everything all out. I seem to recall that there was an earlier cartoon with almost the exact same plot (it may have been "Injun Trouble"). Anyway, the plot has Porky Pig leading a wagon train through the Old West, called Injun Joe Territory. Injun Joe is probably the nastiest dude out there, but a silly pioneer knows a secret about Joe. Yep, it's all part of our cultural myth of manifest destiny...as an excuse for some crazy gags! So, more than anything, these cartoons serve to represent stereotypes about different people. On the Looney Tunes Golden Collection DVDs (this one appears on Volume 5), there's a disclaimer explaining that some of the cartoons contain racist images. And the depictions of American Indians were very likely the most negative. But even so, you can't deny that Bob Clampett had some truly ideas when it came to cartoons. I recommend it as a look at previously acceptable stereotypes. And of course for the clever tricks.
