Plat of Soundings Taken at Sturgeon Bay and Lake Michigan Ship Canal, Wisconsin

Plat of Soundings Taken at Sturgeon Bay and Lake Michigan Ship Canal, Wisconsin | Map or Atlas | Wisconsin Historical Society
This blueprint mostly shows various numbers within the canal and bay. Lake Michigan and Harobor of Refuge are shown along the far right side. Near the harbor the map shows the location of a few buildings, such as the light house, and the light keeper's home. The map contains several blocks of text. The central block labels the map and the creator: "under the direction of Major Gilbert Van B. Wilkes. Corps of Engineers, U.S.A by A.P. Christophel, Supt. April 13 & 15, 1926." The other two notes are labeled "Determination of True Meridian," and "Description of Bench-Marks," and go into further detail about how various locations and elevations were determined. In the far bottom left corner a note reads "corrected July 1925."
