Published in 1776, this depiction of the iconic New York City was created at a time of great upheaval in the colonies. These years marked the New York and New Jersey Campaigns where skirmishes between colonials fed up with British rule and taxation had taken up arms and were fighting troops throughout the eastern seaboard. The Continental Army under General George Washington had been pushed out of New York City. It was posted in New Jersey, where they successfully contained British General Sir William Howe back into New York. This success, however, did not keep the British from maintaining control of New York’s port until their eventual defeat in 1873.
This map shows the Road to Kings Bridge, where the Rebels mean to make a stand and is a truly authentic piece of cartographical history. This map was published in the same year, but before, The Great Fire of New York ravaged the city, destroying some twenty-five percent of the city. This destruction was blamed on residents by the British troops, with civilians blaming the soldiers themselves. The fire had a significant effect on the British occupation as they seized private property and churches to create makeshift barracks and prisons. Crime and poor sanitation would mar the city until the eventual defeat of the British in 1873.
New York City has always been tolerant of immigrants, and the port remained the busiest in the world until 1984, its importance as the cultural and financial capital of the United States cannot be underestimated.
