1762 Lattré, Jean - This detail of Parisian engraver Lattré’s map shows how the border between Canada and Louisiana circumvented the southern end of Lake Michigan at a close distance, following the watershed. Thus the site of Chicago was within Canada, but the locations of many of its later suburbs, such as River Forest and La Grange Park, belonged to Louisiane. [William L.
