Section of Du Pratz's Map of Louisiana, 1757

In A. T. Andreas, History of Chicago, From the Earliest Period to the Present Time (Chicago: A. T. Andreas, 1886), 71.

The 1757 book A History of Louisiana by Antoine Le Page Du Pratz was among the few books carried with the Lewis & Clark expedition across the North American continent. Du Pratz had lived in present-day Louisiana and Mississippi in the early 1700s and his book described geographic and natural features of the region, including second hand accounts of travels deep into the Great Plains. This section of Du Pratz's map of central North America appeared in a history of Chicago from the 1880s.
