Lac Du Flanbeau Region Map 1846

Lac Du Flanbeau Region Map selected from the A. B. Gray 1846 Geological Expedition

A. B. Gray  (1846) was a geologist who was surveying the area south of the copper and iron ranges along Lake Superior to determine if any mineral wealth could be found in the interior lake region. His scientific and cultural observations are excellent. Gray traveled up the Manitowish River to the Trout Lake band of the Ojibwe adding some fine insight relative to the Turtle Band of the Ojibwe and 6-Pause Portage. Most importantly, he describes his stop in Manitowish Waters on Cross Lake that was the summer residence of Chief White Thunder of Lac Du Flambeau.
