Great article at Boston 1775. Some great pictures of Cambridge in 1776. Very cool to browse through.
This is a detail of the wonderful map that Henry Pelham engraved in England after leaving Boston with the British military in 1776. You can explore the whole thing through the Library of Congress’s website of maps from the American Revolution and Its Era.
