John Filson's Map of 1784
Map Drafted by John Filson in 1784 is the proverbial smoking gun of the evidence of Kentucky Colonelcy since much prior to the date it was finally drafted in 1784 based on his personal travels to the Country of Kentucky where he met Col. Daniel Boone and wrote several books. This plate (map) appears in Filson's 1784 book that he began in 1780 in Kentucky meeting dozens of colonels.
