Historical Virginia Maps Atlas

MapofUS.org houses thousands of atlases and maps. One that it particularly interesting and relevant is is the State and County Maps of Virginia Collection. This historical atlas compiles many maps dating as far back as the 18th Century. Taking a look at some of the maps within the collection gives a great look at how Virginia has evolved as both a colony and a commonwealth. The maps included in this atlas shows how the state both views it views itself and its relationships with its bordering states.
