Fine original American-published map of Greece, Turkey, and the Balkans, showing the region in fine detail and published by Matthew Carey in Philadelphia.
The map shows rivers, cities, mountain chains, and other important historical features of note. Troy is marked. The geographic boundaries are most interesting, with Turkish Dalmatia shown and Macedonia extending far into Greece.
Southeastern Europe in 1814 was on the brink of change. That year, the Filiki Eteria was formed with the goal of fomenting insurrection. This revolution would finally come in 1821 and be fought for 8 years against the Ottoman Empire, finally resulting in Greek independence after centuries of Turkish rule.
