Plan of Detroit - 1812 - Map

From the Richardson War of 1812 book:

Fort Lernoult (depicted in the map) was built by the British in 1778.  The fort was renamed Fort Detroit in 1805.  The fort was renamed (again) and was then known as Fort Shelby.  References to Fort Detroit in the War of 1812 refer to this fort and not the older Fort Detroit.
