Here is a great site- the Atlas of the Historical Geography of the United States . Created by the University of Richmond, you can view a variety of maps (some of which are animated).  Here are the sections divisions:

  • The Natural Environment

  • Indians, 1567-1930

  • Explorations in the West and Southwest, 1535-1852

  • Lands, 1603-1930

  • Settlement, Population, and Towns, 1650-1790

  • States, Territories, and Cities, 1790-1930

  • Population, 1790-1930

  • Colleges, Universities, and Churches, 1775-1890

  • Boundaries, 1607-1927

  • Political Parties and Opinions, 1788-1930

  • Political, Social, and Educational Reforms, 1775-1931

  • Industries and Transportation, 1620-1931

  • Foreign Commerce, 1701-1929

  • Plans of Cities, 1775-1803
