Description

MAPPING A NATION: SHAPING THE EARLY AMERICAN REPUBLIC

Join us for a private tour of the APS Museum's latest exhibition --- Mapping a Nation: Shaping the Early American Republic.

Explore an array of maps from the APS collections. Learn about the processes that produced the maps—surveying, drawing, engraving, and printing—in addition to the information and ideas contained in these historic maps.

Mapping a Nation: Shaping the Early American Republic traces the creation and use of maps from the mid-18th century through 1816 to investigate the way maps, as both artworks and practical tools, had political and social meaning. Highlights of the exhibition include:

  • A 1757 copy of the John Mitchell map of the British Empire in North America,
  • Compasses and other surveying instruments,
  • George Washington’s copy of the 1792 map of Washington, D.C.,
  • Maps from the journals of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
