Boston et ses environs
- Boston et ses environs
Reflecting French interest in the American Revolutionary War, this French publication was copied from a similar map of Boston and vicinity published in London in 1778. The original map was based on the British intelligence of Lieutenant Page. As a record of the military activities in the area, it showed British and American fortifications and troop positions during the siege of Boston. It also identified the roads to Concord and Lexington, as well as the site of the Battle of Bunker Hill.
