This map afforded British commanders during the Revolution an excellent overview of areas that would be crucial in the early years of the war, in particular the Hudson Valley and Lake Champlain areas. Likewise, New Jersey is well-delineated for the period.
Vermont is still a part of New York State. Many counties named. In the western part of the map, there are a number of marvelous ephemeral names, such as the Endless Mountains. South of Lake Ontario on the Cayuuga River and around Oneida Lake, there are over a dozen Indian Villages shown, along with early forts. The map is a faithful reduction of Faden's 6 sheet map. Despite the Latin Title, the nomenclature is entirely in English. The dividing line between East and West Jersey is shown, as are boundaries of Pennsylvania, by Patent and other early boundaries.
Many towns and roads are shown. One of the best large format Colonial maps of the region.
