Jolliet's Map of New France, 1674
Return to "Chicago in the Middle Ground"

Scholars believe that the original version of this map was drawn by fur trader Louis Jolliet immediately after his 1673 excursion with Jesuit missionary Jacques Marquette. Jolliet and Marquette had travelled south from the Great Lakes on the Wisconsin and Mississippi (Buade on this map) Rivers to present-day Arkansas, then back north via the Illinois (Outrelaize) and Chicago Rivers to Lake Michigan. The map was dedicated to Frontenac, royally appointed governor of New France.
