You can pull up the historic 6" maps from the 1820s-1840s, the later 24" maps, various other maps. You can overlay the historic maps with modern maps, or various satellite views, vary the opacity of one to the other. All-in-all, very, very flexible, and best of all, available now!

I use it frequently - using it right now!
