Thomas Jefferys was one of the foremost cartographers and maps sellers of his era. In 1760, he became the geographer to King George III. Among his works are important maps of America, including Virginia and New Hampshire, made prior to the French and Indian War. His map of the fort and town of Carillon (Ticonderoga) includes not only the fort and surrounding village, but the unsuccessful English assaults of July 8, 1758. It appeared, along with other maps of forts, cities, and battlefields of the French and Indian War in a Volume entitled A General Topography of North America and the West Indies published first in 1768.
