Isaac Frye covers a lot of ground during the war. Maps help orient provide context for the world Isaac lived in. These maps only show the places in the parts of colonial Colonial America that Isaac traveled to.  I compiled them from period maps ranging in date from 1775 to 1784, though a few earlier maps were used as well.

My research began with learning to apply ArcGIS software to create historical geographic information systems (GIS) and maps. These were my first two efforts, though I have revised them several times since after their initial completion in the early 2000s.
