Historical Map of Pennsylvania:
with a History of Indian Treaties and Land Titles

Edited by P.W. Sheafer & R. Wenning

The "owning" of Pennsylvania was a complicated and confusing chapter in Pennsylvania history. The "purchasing" of Indian land was done through a series of land treaties and eventually resulted in one of the bloodiest periods in Pennsylvania history. "Treaty making" was a time consuming process that sometimes took weeks, months and even years to complete. You cannot understand Pennsylvania history completely without understanding the progression from Indian land to settler's land to becoming Pennsylvania.

The first part of this book, Historical Map of Pennsylvania, was published in 1875 and is the centerpiece of the book. It has been painstakingly reproduced as a 38" x 25" foldout full color map that visually explains the land grab march across Pennsylvania by the settlers, treaty by treaty, as they methodically took possession of the land. The map has an incredible amount of information and shows the Indian Names of Streams, and Villages, and Paths of Travel; The Sites of Old Forts and Battlefields; The Successive Purchases From The Indians; and The Names and Dates of Counties and County Towns. The folded Historical Map of Pennsylvania conveniently stores inside the book.

Included with the Historical Map, this book contains 5 additional parts that explain the treaty process. Part 2 contains the "History of Land Titles" from the Annual Report of the Secretary of Pennsylvania Internal Affairs in 1894. Part 3 is from the "Indian Wars of Pennsylvania" published in 1931. Part 4 is the "Conference at Colonial Fort Pitt April-May 1768" from the Pennsylvania Colonial Records Vol. IX, originally published in 1852. Part 5 is the "Proceedings at a Treaty Held at Fort Stanwix In the Months of Oct. & Nov. 1768" from the Documents Relative to the State of New York, Vol. VIII, originally published at Albany, NY 1857 and Part 6 is the details of the "Purchase of Fort Stanwix Nov 5, 1768", from Pennsylvania Colonial Records, Vol. IX, originally published in 1852.

144 pages, hardback and includes a 38" x 25" full color foldout map. This printing is limited to 1,000 copies. $44.95
