In 1798, surveyors and map makers were sent by the governments of Britain and the United States to determine the northeast boundary line between the two countries.

This sketch is part of a collection of maps made to help determine the boundary and was taken from one made by an Indian, Francis Joseph, on a piece of birchbark in 1798.
