1780 map of Maryland

1780 Map of the Province of Maryland in North America

Here’s a really old map of Maryland during the Revolution. Though, interestingly, it was the Province of Maryland during Colonial Times, 1780 was after the Declaration of Independence. Notice, of course, the absence of Washington, D.C. Source: University of Maryland
