This may be useful, but everyone should be aware that the OSI already provide wonderful historical map resources online, for free, and have for many years!

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!
