Have you looked at the Library of Congress? They have over 4 million maps, and most are on line. I went to the viewing room, and they will bring you anything you want. They have the largest collection in the world. I asked about a map from the Seminoles Wars, and they brought out the original map that Zachary Taylor used, and just handed it to me. The room has a place to photograph the maps. No one seems to know about this place, even in the Library itself. It is in the basement hidden from the masses.

Just though you guys would like to know about this.

Hi Ken,

Geat info.. if only that had maps online though.

I found the following site and spoke to a rep who says that we could use these maps for TV docs.
Premier USA - Adobe Illustrator EPS Vector Format - Map Resources

The cost is $399 for vector maps of the U.S. the detail is pretty good, would like to see a bit more but I think it will work for us.
