Map Guide to American Migration Routes, 1735-1815
"For years, genealogists have had to depend on less-than-perfect, mostly hand-drawn maps. The maps have come from a variety of dubious sources. Yet genealogists need to locate and understand the early American migration routes their ancestors may have traveled. In this book, William Dollarhide shows early American migration routes with well-researched and consistently drawn maps. The routes explored begin with the King's Highway of 1735 from Boston to Charleston and end with the roads that resulted from the War of 1812 in the Old Southwest. These maps provide critical information for genealogists trying to locate the passages of early migration in America. The publication familiarizes readers about why and when the earliest wagon roads became available by discussing the significant historical events that led to the opening of new settlements. The wagon roads appear in chronological order so anyone can see why and when the earliest wagon roads were developed in America."--Amazon.
