Was Your State On The Right Side Of History?

Here are five maps that show which states had the right idea, and which ones had the very, very wrong one.

Slavery laws before the Emancipation Proclamation was issued in 1863

Women's suffrage laws before passage of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920

Segregation laws before Brown vs Board Of Education in 1954

Interracial marriage laws before a 1967 Supreme Court decision deemed anti-miscegenation laws unconstitutional

Gay marriage rights in 2012

So, did your state get it right?
