New France in the Champlain Valley: 1609-1759

This map “New France in the Champlain Valley,” is inscribed with place-names and other geographical designations used by French explorers, soldiers and settlers between 1609-1759, a time when France claimed and settled the area that is now New York State and Vermont.
