I love maps. I’ve been fascinated with them since childhood, well before I could actually drive. To me, these charted stories suggest places I might go. Thus, maps are full of intrigue for me and they often serve to fuel my imagination. So, imagine my delight at finding this Library of Congress online resouce, a veritable treasure trove of maps from early in American (and world) history.
