Before the start of the Revolutionary War, Washington went on an exploratory trip to the Ohio River Valley so he could view the lands that he earned in return for his service during the French and Indian War. He took a friend, Dr. James Craik, and three servants to view his land in December of 1770.
This engraving was hand-colored and printed in 1860 by the G. & F. Bill Company of New York. The colors are still vibrant and the entire piece is free of tears, folds, or marks.
