    I find Omniatlas is a very useful interactive historical atlas. Not only does it show historical events and boundaries but it links to wiki articles with more information about the events. I particularly like how you can see when regional events occurred and compare them to events in the same region and time period that normally wouldn't be associated with them. For example the North America 1863 map allows you to see what was happening with both the French adventure in Mexico and the Spanish adventure in Santa Domingo and compare them to what was happening during the American Civil War. This site is really good for thinking up alternate histories.
