This map isn't part of any series, but we have other maps of the Revolutionary War that you might want to check out.

This map of the Ohio River downstream of Fort Pitt [gmap] (modern site of Pittsburgh [gmap] ) by John Montresor is monothematically focused on the river and the river only.

Wouldn't be unreasonable to assume that this was made for purposes of examining future exploitation for riverine transport.

I think it's quite handsome, at any rate. And made a bit mysterious because of what it chooses to ignore.
