Ironically, the controlling French admirals and generals used this map, printed in Paris and derived from Mitchell’s 1755 map, to plot with Franklin and the other American revolutionaries to avenge French losses in the French and Indian War. Its publication in 1756 was proof that antagonists continued intellectual and commercial exchanges despite their being at  war.
