Where is a good online map depicting the U.S. as it appeared in 1865? I'm particularly interested in the topography of the Midwest and West. Thanks!

On a visit to a park lake in mid-southern Illinois today, I encountered many little muddy burrows in the ground, ranging from one to two inches across. I spotted little digging crab claws in one of the more freshly-muddied holes; others looked less recently dug. My search skills fail me as to what these critters could be. The lake was fed by a small stream, and the town (Sparta, IL) is a bit less than 20 miles from the Mississippi.

Are there any places within a few hours of flat-as-a-pancake Chicago that offer a scenic, preferably hilly hiking experience?

My boyfriend and I are looking to take a trip somewhere in the eastern/midwest US for President's Day weekend. We're looking for either a city that is not a super popular tourist destination, or a small-ish ski resort. [+] [more inside]

My band is going to go on a tour from the Midwest to the East Coast in Late March. What small clubs (Cap 100- or less) or basements- geared towards noisey indie rock- would you recommend playing in between Milwaukee and The Atlantic Ocean? If possible, contact info or a link would be appreciated.
