A wonderful small map presenting Benedict Arnold's route to Quebec during the autumn of 1775. The map depicts the area from the mouth of the Kennebec River at the Atlantic Ocean to Quebec. Among the towns identified are George Town, Pownalborough, and Norridgwalk. A dotted line from Ammeguntick Lake to Pt. Levi represents "Colonel Arnold's Route in 1775."
The map is dated September, 1776 at the right just above the neat line. The map accompanied "An Authentic Journal" of Arnold's trek to Quebec which appeared in the September and October issues of the Magazine. The September, 1776 issue of the Magazine which includes the first part of the journal is included with the map.
