So, I just added the historical map I created.

Click on "Make Map" and login:
Or, if you're logged in, this should allow you to go directly to the map:

When you see the map, click in the upper-left and choose to animate the map.
Note: For some reason, I cannot animate the features "cumulatively"...
You can only choose a range, and the previous changes disappear
(you'll see what I mean if you try it).
