Mapping a New Nation: Abel Buell's Map of the United States
is made possible by the generous support of
David M. Rubenstein.

Mr. Rubenstein has placed the map at the Library of Congress
so it can be publicly displayed and, by digital technology,
made available for research purposes.

This exhibition was developed under the leadership of James H. Billington, the Librarian of Congress.
