1839 Burr VT State map

This Vermont map is an excerpt from a much larger map of New England which was probably commissioned by the US Congress. The author, David Burr is listed here as "Geographer to the House of Representatives" and "Late Topographer to the Post Office".

The special value of this map is that it distinguishes all the main roads with their mileages between villages. The legend characterizes the best roads as suitable for "Horse, Mail, Post and Coach", while the third category is for "Horse, Mail or Sulkey".
