Price and Strother, Joshua Potts, and the Evolution of 'A Map of Cape Fear River and its Vicinity'

Record #:
A look at the work of surveyors and cartographers Jonathan Price, John Strother, and Joshua Potts. Price and Strother published the first actual survey and map of North Carolina in 1798, and Potts' first map came in 1801. All three significantly advanced the cartography of the state during their careers and their work formed the basis for subsequent maps and plans for fortification of Wilmington and the Cape Fear River.
