Another fascinating map: the states won in the 1904 election:

1904 election results by state

In this case a very popular and charismatic Teddy Roosevelt, the Spanish-American War hero, ran for the Republicans and easily beat the Democrat, Alton Parker. There were also 3rd and 4rth parties and presidential candidates in that race, but they took very few votes away from the Big Two.

Note how in 1904 the Democratic Party still owned the South. Roosevelt took everthing else.
