Mapping the Early American South
October 21-22, 2022
From the earliest mapping of North America by European navigators, to military campaigns during the French & Indian War and the American Revolution, to the exploration of the trans-Appalachian west, different communities used maps as tools to establish unique visions of the American South. This program brings together scholars from both sides of the Atlantic to explore how maps in the early South both created and reflected patterns of colonization, settlement, and migration. Patterns that remain on the landscape to the present day.
