The losers map (Happy July 4th)

Posted on July 04 2018, by Dave Vail

It's July 4th! And it all started here. This interesting map was in the The American military pocket atlas of 1776, printed in England, and undoubtedly carried by British Forces during the War of Independence. Luckily, it didn't help - the British lost, and today we get to barbecue some chicken and blow off some fireworks. Enjoy!

(If you'd like a copy of this incredible map, we have it in silk and paper here.)
