George Vancouver’s Surveying and Mapping of the Northwest Coast of North America.

Dec 7, 2022
Time: 1:00pm ET

Captain George Vancouver’s mapping of the western coast of North American conclusively proved that the fabled and long sought-after “Northwest Passage” as a short cut from the Atlantic to Pacific Oceans did not exist. His map provided a definitive location of the coastline for subsequent explorers including David Thompson and Lewis and Clark. It was also critical information for resolving the Oregon Boundary Dispute Treaty of 1846 between Great Britain and the United States and influenced the current boundaries between British Columbia, Alaska, and Washington.
