This map isn't part of any series, but we have other maps of American Indian lands that you might want to check out.

This is a really interesting and exciting map about an event that was pretty goddamn terrible. I've followed it up and down its course with fascination and interest, all the while feeling a bit conflicted.

It depicts General John Sullivan's scortched-earth march against the Iroquois in the Summer of 1779.

Beautiful map, though. No denying.
