520    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.
