York County was first settled in 1749, and by the middle of the nineteenth century, the eponymous county seat was one of the most populous regions in the United States. This depiction was published one year prior to the outbreak of the Civil War, in which York became the northernmost town to be captured and occupied by Confederate forces. In the years following the conclusion of the conflict York would enjoy a period of economic prosperity as it became an industrial center with steam and railroad manufacturing as well as paper mills attracting residents and merchants alike.
York was the United States' first Capital after the Revolutionary War ended and had been the birthplace of the first Articles of Confederation, the first document uniting the original thirteen colonies, in 1777. This depiction contains an enormous amount of information and incredible detail with the inset illustrations of notable buildings and civic features. Hand-colored lines give this a unique character; the distinctive style and crisp aesthetic immediately transport the viewer back in time, creating an indelible link between the past and present. The surveys used to compile this map were conducted by hand and are remarkably accurate for the period.
York County was in a period of significant growth and transformation in 1860 as immigrants from across Western Europe, Ireland, and Denmark flocked to the region for work in both industrial centers as well as to establish farms in the area's rich soil. This is a genuine piece of American cartographical history.
