A scarce Revolutionary War-era map of North America, showing the Theater of War. Substantial topographical and other detail is shown, including the locations of forts, towns, rivers, mines, land grants, borders between the colonies, and areas occupied by Native North American Tribes. The borders, past and (then) present) between different colonies/states are marked, including "Limits stipulated 1738", the southern "Bounds of Carolina by Charter 1665" along a parallel running approxmately through Daytona Beach, today in Florida, "Bounds of Virginia and New England 1609" running along the 40th Parallel, and "North Bounds of New England by Charter 1620" extending to the west of Lake Superior just south of the 48th Parallel. The borders of the Granville Tract (named as "Earl Granville's Property") is indicated in the Carolinas. Granville had refused to sell his lands to the Crown in 1728-9. He and his Executors subsequently disposed of much of his property; the remainder was confiscated by the new state of North Carolina in 1777 during the Revolutionary War. The location "Walker 1750" is marked in what is now southern Kentucky, the location of the royal grant of land to the "Loyal Land Company" founded by the explorer Thomas Walker.
