Map of Westchester County in southeastern New York State as it appeared in the Revolutionary War period, compiled in the early 1930s. Shows divisions between states, counties, and manor holdings. Also shown are rivers, lakes, roads, and important sites. These include such places as forts, churches, taverns, meeting houses, court houses, manor houses, inns, and camps. Lines of latitude and longitude are provided at intervals of 5 minutes. Westchester County is bounded by Long Island Sound on the south, the Hudson River on the west, and Connecticut on the east.
