FTM 2014 will do that under its Map tab.

Great, Thank you for responding. Does it use current maps or does it have maps from the 1870's do you know?

Well, it's actually the "Places" tab and not maps. My bad. It uses Microsoft Maps as its underlying base map, so no, unfortunately it doesn't take into account historical political entities. How one deals with that has been the topic of numerous threads.

and more out there I'm sure.

You can check out some of the FTM tutorials and get a better idea of what it does.:
