Map of New England and New York.


A map of New England and New York created by Cotton Mather. Cotton Mather is the grandson of John Cotton, who was a puritan preacher that gave the sermon “Gods Promise to His Plantation” and It includes a scale (in English miles), a compass and locations of towns and villages, as well as geographical features. The map itself is not very different than previous maps because there weren’t very many developments since the creation of previous maps. The map is found in the book “Magnalia Christi Americana”, and it’s considered the first map of New England that was created in the 18thcentury. The “Magnalia Christi Americana” is a history of New England from its beginnings.
