Ft. Sullivan, May to November 1779

This map is a draft of Fort Sullivan drawn by Col. Israel Shreve's in 1779 during the campaign against the British backed Iroquois Indians.

The fort was situated next to the Tioga River on the Pennsylvania and New York border. If you would like to read more about the campaign click here and here.

Doesn't look too bad for being a couple of hundred years old does it?


PS: Don't forget to enter the "Name this photo" contest from yesterday. Let's give Jen from Sprite's Keeper a little competition.


  1. I would love to follow you around for a day. You find so many interesting things. At least I find them so.

    I promise I wouldn't follow you in a stalker type of way. :)

  2. Oh, Michele, you already know I'd out-and-out stalk you if I could, so I can't make any promises.

    Also, just hand the prize to Jen. I don't know if anyone can top that comment.

  3. 2 hundred years old? It doesn't look a day over ninety! :-)

  4. That was very cool! And it's nice because I have a grandfather who WAS THERE!!!!!


  5. Cool! Please tell me you found that stuck in some random old book.

    Have you ever read _The Scholar Adventurers_ by Richard Altick? You would love it.

  6. I am a map freak. I love it. Cheers Michele!!

  7. Interesting blog you got here. I'd like to read more concerning this topic. Thanx for sharing this data.
