Map of the Battle of Yorktown

George Washington's personal map of the Battle of Yorktown, which descended through the family of an aide to Washington, was auctioned two weeks ago. It brought $1.15 million at James Julia Auctions in Maine. That set a record for an American map and was possibly the most expensive map sold anywhere.

wow I wonder what a menu that i have from 1919 from Schoffield Barrracks Hawaii would be worth. It was for the Christmas dinner. Hawaii was just a territory then not even a state till much later.
