This website has scanned color maps of every state in the Union circa 1895. I used PosteRazor to print these very large files across several pages to make big ol' maps as game aids.

My favorite feature is the naming of just about every major land feature- lots of ideas for interesting locations here.

Hope you guys get as much use out of these as I do.
