Vermont 250 Years Ago
Many Vermont towns were first granted or settled in 1761, after the French & Indian War ended in New England. Here we have a selection of three maps from that era. The map in the middle is an excerpt from the 1761 Blanchard & Langdon Map of New Hampshire (there was no Vermont ). To the left is an excerpt of the same area from hand-drawn manuscript, made four years earlier.  To the right is an excerpt of the same area on the 1784 "Sawyer" edition of the map.
