Description

Fine map of the British Colonies, illustrating General Burgoyne's march from Saratoga, New York, to Charlottesville, Virginia, which appeared in the French edition of Thomas Anburey's Voyages dans les parties interieurs de l'Amerique by Thomas Anburey, Paris 1790.

The map is similar to the 1789 English version and covers the region from Maine to Virginia. Pennsylvania is shown west beyond the Alleghanies up to the river called "R. de l'Ohio," i.e. the Allegheny River. Vermont is called "Nouvelle Angleterre."

Thomas Anburey was an officer in the British Army during the American Revolution, serving under Burgoyne. Anburey participated in that Burgoyne's ill-fated expedition from Canada, which ended in defeat at Saratoga in 1777. The map shows Burgoyne's route from Saratoga to Charlottesville, Virginia.
