Description

Map of the British Colonies, which identifies each of the 13 Colonies by name in the title and in the map, at the outbreak of the American Revolution.

Maryland is an odd shape for the time period. Includes detail in the Great Lakes region and a few places named in the Ohio Valley. Ft. Necessite is also shown. The map is very Franco-centric, limiting British claims to the regions east of the Appalachian Mountains.
