This French map of Boston harbor is based on hydrographic and military surveys prepared by British engineers before and during the American Revolutionary War. For Frenchmen interested in recent political events, the map also depicts the location of British and American troops during the British siege of Boston.
Of particular interest is the cartouche showing a patriot soldier holding a Liberty Pole and Flag, iconic representations of Boston’s Liberty Tree. This map is an important item in the Leventhal Map Center American Revolutionary War Era Collection of Distinction as well as an example of an urban map.
