old_maps Here is a remarkably detailed map of colonial Pennsylvania. I’ve just posted this to my Etsy shop after some editing. It’s a snapshot of Pennsylvania at the time of the French and Indian war!. Here we see an arc of colonial forts protecting greater Philadelphia which was the only “improved part“ of the colony of Pennsylvania. Pittsburgh and much of North Western PA were not yet “improved“, And do not appear on this map. On the right-hand side near Philadelphia it’s very detailed. Quite a few houses identified by name of the owner. But out west, meaning the Harrisburg area, it is sparse.On one of our pictures you see Fort Hunter and just below it, Harris ferry. That’s Harrisburg. Note that a few homes are labeled. The legend tells us that triangles denote an “Indian town”, And sure enough you can see them- mostly along the rivers. Even the names of the tribes!? The main roads – really footpaths - are shown. Note in one case the Warriors path. The natives and the European settlers were fighting at the very time this map was published The original map is 2 1/2 feet high by 5 feet wide – a big one. I sell reprints in different sizes online at my Etsy shop, Amazon, and my regular website. #oldmap #oldmapsforsale #oldmaps #historicalmaps #pennsylvaniamap #pennsylvaniahistory #colonialmap #frenchandindianwar

charlesedwinpuckett "A New Map of the British Dominions in North America..." This map, published in London, circa 1763 by Thomas Kitchen, is one of the earliest available maps following the 1763 Treaty of Paris ending the French and Indian War in North America. The new boundaries are reflected, including the Colonies of Virginia, North and South Carolina, and Georgia which laid claim to all lands extending west to the Mississippi River. More information is available on our website, item M-14031, www.cepuckett.com. @charlesedwinpuckett #cartography #antiquemap #americanhistory #eighteenthcentury #frenchandindianwar #lovemaps

downtown.abigail 1. My haul from @harvardbookstore and their warehouse today! 2. Day 19 of @bookriot #riotgrams - Favorite School Read. I have so very many, but The War That Made America, about the French & Indian (aka Seven Years’) War, completely changed me in college, starting me on the path towards a focus in Native American history and a different view of the world in general. . . . #books #bookcollection #fiction #nonfiction #history #frenchandindianwar #sevenyearswar #schoolbooks #collegebooks #college #collegereading #reading

framechik Pinot enjoyed a little hike around the grounds of the Nemacolin Castle tonight. High above the Monongahela River, it sits as a neighbor to the Blackhorse Tavern, where the Whiskey Rebellion was formulated. My neighborhood has a lot of other historical places and ghosties of the past 😳#nemacolincastle #brownsville #whiskeyrebellion #frenchandindianwar #fayettecounty #monriver #revolutionarywar #bowmanscastle

fort.stanwix.nps #FortFactFriday #DidYouKnow The original Fort Stanwix was predated by 5 other small colonial forts along the #Oneida Carry. The series was built between 1755 and 1756. The first groups of soldiers to "garrison" (or occupy) the fort during the French & Indian War were Scottish Highlanders. This marker is one of five #NewYorkState Historical Markers throughout the City of Rome, NY that mark the locations of the predecessors of Fort Stanwix. You can learn more about them and their occupants by reading the following article: http://go.nps.gov/1felgp #History #FunFactFriday #FrenchAndIndianWar

alpharanger1849 Join Or Die was a political cartoon designed by Benjamin Franklin on May 9, 1754, to unite the thirteen original colonies against British rule. It was first used during the French and Indian war and the American Revolution with a snake cut in eight parts of the colonies. #joinordie #benjaminfranklin #frenchandindianwar #americanrevolution #politicalcartoon #americanindependence #patriots #americancolonies #historychannel #followme #alpharanger1849 #historymajor #walkinghistorybook

cedarchestvintage This was found in a lot of fabric obtained at an estate sale in Virginia. It’s contents have always haunted me. After research I have learned Brevete means “patent” and SGDG stands for “Sans Garantie Du Governement” which was a disclaimer by the French government stating that it does not guarantee enforcement of the claimed patent. It was also printed on pistols used in WWI by tench sweepers and Belgian/French officers. Given the keys and portrait could this be from a Frenchman during the French and Indian War? / American Revolution? #antique #antiqueclothing #antiqueleather #antiqueportrait #18thcentury #revolutionarywar #frenchandindianwar #portraiture #portraitart

napoleonbonapartee_ 💰🇫🇷💰Louisiana Purchase💰🇫🇷💰 Napoleon here🤴🏼, I’m proud to say that France has controlled this vast area from 1699 until now, 1762, due to the #frenchandindianwar we had to give the territory to our ally Spain.🇪🇸 💰💰💰💰💰💰1800💰💰💰💰💰💰 Update: Good news! This territory is back in the hands of France. I hope to use this North American mainland territory to supply a renewed French sugar empire in the Caribbean with food, cotton, lumber, and other staples. 💰💰💰💰December 1803💰💰💰💰 Update: Hey guys today I decided to sell a big part of North America that I got from a Treaty of Spain📜 to Thomas Jefferson. I decided not to keep it in failing to put down a slave revolution in Haiti, the impending war with Great Britain, financial difficulties💲, and probable British naval blockade of France. Jefferson, a good friend of mine, seemed more in need of it anyway. #sold
