This mapping was done at different levels of detail, in order to support various land use and other purposes. As the years passed, the USGS produced new map versions of each area. The most current maps are available from The National Map and US Topo quadrangles. TopoView shows the many and varied older maps of each area, and so is useful for historical purposes—for example, the names of some natural and cultural features have changed over time, and the 'old' names can be found on these historical topographic maps.  TopoView was created by the National Geologic Map Database project, in support of topographic mapping program managed by the National Geospatial Program.  Geologic mapping and topographic mapping at the USGS have a long tradition together. ​Comparing modern-day Philadelphia to the historical map of the area in 1891.

Rep. Barbara Lee, whose patient lobbying led to a new bipartisan consensus for overturning the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) that has underpinned the endless “war on terror,” called out House Speaker Paul Ryan today for his decision to remove her amendment “in the dead of night.”

I've been saying that the AUMF needs to go since it was passed. The President may be Commander in Chief, but Congress has the exclusive right to declare war.

It's obvious that Paul Ryan has misplaced his manhood somewhere on the DC Metro, never to be seen again, and rather than reclaim possibly the single biggest power that Congress has, decided to do something underhanded in order to make sure that the chimpanzee in residence at 1600 Pennsylvania retains control of that power.
