Title

Early Map of DC

Description

This map shows the District of Columbia (and surrounding areas) about 90 years before the opening of CUA. Prior to the University's founding, the immediate area went from Native to Colonial land, passed ownership a number of times, played host to many of Washington's early influencers, and even had a small role in the Civil War.
