Zoom Into Maps- nice Library of Congress educational site

Zoom Into Maps is a nice educational tool for an introduction to historic maps and the Library of Congress’ digital map collections. There are digital images of maps on various themes, including exploration, migration, local places, and, since it’s getting close to election time, I especially enjoyed looking at the original broad-side from 1812 popularizing the term “Gerry-mander” and depicting the districts around Salem and Danvers, Massachusetts as a salamander.

If you are interested in historical maps and cartography, and want to see the amazing maps in the Library of Congress’ collection, then definitely check out Zoom Into Maps.
