Located in Southwestern New York and along the Pennsylvania border, Sullivan County is located in the iconic Catskill Mountains. Named after hero of the American Revolution John Sullivan. Sullivan served under General Washington in the defeat of British General Howe and Long Island, as well as engaging in battle through New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island.
As the country found itself nearing Civil War, Sullivan County provided a regiment for Union Forces led by John C. Holley. The conflict would never reach the county itself though they did provide munitions and troops for Union Forces.
The county became known as the Borscht Belt as immigrants from Eastern Europe flocked to the region for it’s thriving manufacturing and milling industries driven bu its proximity to the Delaware River. The region became known for its stunning natural scenery and saw the establishment of numerous hotels and resorts. During the mid 19th century the landscape would provide the setting for the popular Hudson River School of painting. The region has a long history of attracting artists, writers, and musicians.
Sullivan County was the site for the incomparable Woodstock festival in 1969 when nearly five hundred thousand attendees attended a four day festival featuring some of the most popular musical acts of the era and becoming an indelible part of American History.
The distinctive aesthetic and classic style of this illustration immediately transport the viewer back in time and this is truly an authentic piece of American cartographical history.
