Map resources

I spoke with some librarians today who pointed me to two excellent online resources for historical maps, the University of Texas Map Library and the David Rumsey Map Collection.  There is so much untapped information on these sites its overwhelming.  Below were two favorites that I found on Rumsey's site.

The Distribution of Wealth, 1870

Ranking of States by Income, Debt, Literacy, etc, 1880
