Historical Atlas of the United States: With Original Maps

“Historical Atlas of the United States: With Original Maps” by Derek Hayes is the collection of more than five hundred historical maps from around the world. This Atlas book is the first one to tell the history of America’s past from a unique geographical perspective. It is covering from conception to colonization to Hurricane Katrina. The Historical Atlas of the United States highlights the evolution of geographical knowledge at the same time that it presents a fascinating chronicle of the expansion and development of a nation. I think that this is the perfect atlas for our FYS 100 class at the moment as we are just beginning to read, learn, and discuss the expansion of the United States and how maps and geography were a big part of it.
