Geography & Map Division
This 1759 manuscript map dating from the era of the French and
Indian War, shows a battle plan proposed by the British for their
encounter with French troops near Fort Ticonderoga, New York. Drawn
by William Brasier, this map is from the collection of William Faden,
one of the most prominent British publishers of American Revolutionary
battle maps. His collection includes many beautifully colored manuscript
maps that later were incorporated into engraved maps of the period
and were printed and sold by Faden in London.
