<mods:identifier type='local-call'>G3772.N3 1777 .B53</mods:identifier><mods:abstract>This topographical map of Narragansett Bay was based on surveys conducted in 1764 and 1774 by military engineer Charles Blaskowitz. Blaskowitz worked with Samuel Holland to survey the northern Atlantic coast. Londoner William Faden published this 1777 map when the British occupied Newport, Rhode Island. The following year, America's alliance with the French faced its first test during the inconclusive Battle of Rhode Island. This map features the coastline and islands, locating individual farmsteads and towns. Marginal text praises Rhode Island for the "perfection" of its fish, and notes that residents are free to practice any religion they choose.</mods:abstract><mods:note>A version of this map can be viewed as a georeferenced overlay in an interactive application made especially for We Are One: Mapping America's Road from Revolution to Independence http://d2o8owo4k087al.cloudfront.net/index.html?mapId=65.</mods:note><mods:identifier type='local-other'>06_01_010542</mods:identifier></mods:mods>
