Welcome to the future home of ARGO: American Revolutionary Geographies Online, a joint project of the Fred W. Smith Library for the Study of George Washington at Mount Vernon and the Norman B. Leventhal Map and Education Center at the Boston Public Library. The ARGO map portal will be a comprehensive, curated collection of geographic depictions of North America created between 1750 and 1800, drawn from institutions across North America and Europe. The portal will include published and manuscript maps, land surveys, battle maps, views, and more, all supported by a robust interpretive framework that will make these materials more accessible and understandable than ever before.
ARGO will launch in Summer 2022. Until then, you can use this site to browse the maps currently in the collection.
