Summary William Bartram was a Quaker and son of 18th-century naturalist John Bartram. In 1772 he was commissioned by Dr. John Fothergill of London to explore the Florida territories, making drawings and collecting specimens of unfamiliar plants. Bartram sailed from Philadelphia and landed at Charleston, S.C. in 1773.ℓFrom there heℓexplored Georgia and East Florida, especially the portion inhabited by the Seminole Indians. After returning to Charleston, he set out west in 1775ℓfor the Appalachian Mountains and Cherokee country, unaware that war had broken out in New England. He crossed the Chattahoochee River into present-day Alabama and then ventured south, winding up as far as the Mississippi River near Baton Rouge. Bartram was one of the first European Americans to extensively explore the Appalachian region, and his writings are praised for their vivid descriptions of geological features and peoples.
