Fantastic Exhibition at the New-York Historical Society:

"Mapping America’s Road from Revolution to Independence"

Mapping America’s Road from Revolution to Independence showcases hand-drawn and engraved maps from the 18th and early 19th centuries that illuminate the tremendous changes—geographic, political, and economic—that occurred before, during, and just after the Revolutionary War. The exhibition features rarely displayed manuscripts and printed maps from New-York Historical’s own premier collection, including the original manuscript surveys of Robert Erskine, Geographer and Surveyor General of the Continental Army, and his successor Simeon De Witt. Also on display will be John Jay’s personal copy of John Mitchell’s Map of the British and French Dominions in North America (1755) to which hand-drawn red lines representing proposed boundaries were added during the negotiations of the Treaty of Paris, 1782 -  1783. This exhibition was organized by the Norman B. Leventhal Map Center at the Boston Public Library as We Are One: Mapping America’s Road from Revolution to Independence and curated at New-York Historical by Nina Nazionale, Director of Library Operations and Curator of Printed Collections. The book, Revolution: Mapping the Road to American Independence, 1755-1783, is available for purchase at the NYHistory Store.
