Historical Maps of the United States

The history of the United States has been well documented through maps since the first appearance of America (labeled Terra Incgognita) in Martin Waldseemuller’s Strasbourg edition of the Ptolemy Atlas in 1513. Our extensive collection of historical maps includes maps that illustrate the earliest explorations, all the way up to the formations of states and regions as well as maps that depict battles fought during the American Revolution and the Civil War, and ever popular railroad maps of the United States.

We are constantly working to expand our collection of historic maps. Please revisit often to see what’s new.
