Good evening. Can anyone give me a few sites with older past maps....Topo... Satellite etc? I always search for myself before asking but I haven't been successful. There is civil war history in Tensas Parish where I live and I know of a ferry landing but need to an older map for reference. Any help is greatly thanked.

Historic Aerialscom They have maps also. Probably only go back to the 1940's but helpful because change came slow until after WW2. Also maybe LSU Library.

I saw a YouTube clip awhile back. It took older aerials and blended them over current aerials. You control the blending which was cool to watch. Tried to find it but cant remember the name or what it was attached to. I’m going to keep looking but I’m not that good at this……

Highlifter1000, there is a Maps forum and a Technology forum below. Your question was probably answered in one of those already.
Your right to ask and I should look at these forums more often too.
Best of luck,
Tony

Ron, your last two sentences had to describe me. I had to laugh.
