James Williams is a professional surveyor. He has been a lecturer at The Ohio State University and Virginia Military Institute. He has surveyed many tracts including the US Military Tract, the Virginia Military District, and the Congress Lands. He created period maps for the movies Gettysburg and Gods and Generals.
A culmination of decades of research on field notes, plats, correspondence, legislation, and observations of surveyors, cartographers, government officials, military commanders, Native Americans, early settlers, and land speculators, this volume is the first of its kind in nearly a century. Interweaving the history of Ohio and biographies of the individuals associated with surveying and mapping, Blazes, Posts and Stones is a must-read book about the nonsequential development of Ohio lands and its subdivisions. The book is complete with maps and figures and provides technical descriptions of them. An excellent resource for county engineers, but also for those who have an interest in Ohio history.
