Additional Details

Ross' plan was the Mississippi-focused map featured in Jefferys' American Atlas and most examples of Faden's North American Atlas. Throughout the Revolutionary War it was the most detailed military plan of the area, and this, the second edition, includes additional information around New Orleans. Stevens & Tree 31(b).
