A new and correct map of the coast of Africa, from Sta. Cruz lat. 30 north. to the coast of Angola lat 11. S. with explanatory notes of all the forts and settlements belonging to the several European powers

We Are One: This map illustrates the intersection of native African and European cultures in western Africa during the mid-18th century. Besides designating which native kingdoms ruled the coastal regions, it also locates European settlements, forts, and trading sites along the coast. The inset map and marginal legend identify individual ports by nationality. These European footholds were used in the slave trade and to export natural resources like gold.
