December 26, 2019 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
The development of cartography in the 18th century was vital to how citizens of North America came to understand their identities within their communities. This presentation will focus on the work of British surveyor and cartographer John Hills, whose life produced nearly seventy detailed manuscript maps of events between 1777-1815. Lecture is held in the Community Room. Onsite and street parking available.
