    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    That map shows an area of Covington, Louisiana.
    I suggest you go to Google Earth and see what is there now.

    Can you navigate on the map to a corner where there is a map key?
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    First, you do realize that's not an aerial map, yes? Quality aerial images for most of the country won't even date too far back, the technology not really being up to snuff until the last 20 years or so, those that do date further back generally lack visibility and detail, the resolution so poor built in zoom features are of little use. Also, a lot of the aerial image sites will often substitute the type of general maps you show in your post for all the above reasons.
