This chart details the topography and waterways in the region around Niagara Falls, as drawn and directed by Captain William G. Williams, a Lake Erie Superintendent, and other U.S. army engineers planning for the construction of a canal in the area. The chart includes interesting details such as the locations of several historic battles along the Canadian border, including the "Lundays Lane Battle, 25th July 1814," and an Indian reservation for the Tuscarora tribe. Some insets provide details and soundings for specific regions on the coastline, while another inset shows a broad overview of the surrounding states, including distance measurements.
