The Man Who Charted the Coast

Record #:
In 1733, Edward Mosely published “A New and Correct Map of the Province of North Carolina” after his team painstakingly surveyed the state. Using compasses, clocks, and chains to measure, he then inked then map and sent it to England for publishing. Only three of these original maps still exist today: two in England, and one in Joyner Library at East Carolina University, North Carolina.
