Mapping Washington's Life
I've been obsessing lately about Creating Stories with Historical Maps. One website which does this very well is Washington's World.
Washington's World is a biographical map of George Washington's life, from his birth in Westmoreland County, Virginia to his death at Mount Vernon. The map includes the option to display various journeys undertaken by Washington during his life, including, his presidential tours and his trip to Barbados.
Washington's World has recently added a number of historical map layers to the map. These historic maps allow you to explore some of the locations highlighted on the map as they looked during Washington's own life.
