Video Lunch Bite – Mapping Revolutionary New York

August 15, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

Detail of "A Map of the Province of New York, with Part of Pensilvania, and New England" from our library collection.

Join historian Kieran O’Keefe for a discussion of eighteenth-century mapmaking, focusing on a 1775 map of New York. Based on a survey by British military engineer John Montresor, the map depicts New York and parts of neighboring colonies, and includes the topography of the Hudson highlands and the Hudson-Lake Champlain corridor, a region heavily contested during the Revolutionary War.

You can be a part of the show!  Kieran will answer your questions about eighteenth-century cartography as well as this map in the video. Submit your questions by August 3 using the button below, then watch with us when Mapping Revolutionary New York premiers on August 15 at 12:30 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time).
