Swedish Settlement in the Delaware River Valley in the mid-17th Century
Scarce early map of Fort Christina, between Brandywine Creek and the Christina River in present-day Wilmington, Delaware.
The map appeared in Kort Beskrifning om Provincien Nya Swerige uti America. . . , published by Holm in 1702.
The map illustrates the Swedish settlement of Fort Christina, the first permanent settlement in the Delaware River Valley, which existed between 1638 and 1655, when it was captured by the Dutch.
