The Carolinas by Henry Mouzon. 1775

A nice example of the famous "Mouzon Map".

This map, which extends from the coastal area of the two Carolinas westward to the Appalachian mountains in the Cherokee country, was the chief type map for the region during the fifty years following its publication.

Both British and American forces used this map during the Revolutionary War. The copy of the Mouzon map carried by George Washington is preserved at the American Geographical Society Library in Milwaukee. The copy of the Mouzon map carried by Sir Henry Clinton, the British Commander, is kept at the William L. Clements Library at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
