Library of Congress—Abel Buell’s Map of the United States, 1784

Abel Buell’s New and Correct Map of the United States of North America, 1784, is the first map of the newly independent United States compiled, printed and published in America by an American.

David purchased the map in 2010 and placed it at the Library of Congress so that it can be both publicly displayed and, by means of digital technology, made available for research purposes.
