Mappy Monday: Why you can't always believe the map...

   Woodstock has one unusual fact in its history: until 1749, it was part of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. This would have made for an odd layout on maps, so I went looking for a map that represented the late 1600s. I found an image online for the period ending in 1684 - and saw a problem. Can you catch it?

   Lesson learned. I will not even expect "modern" maps to be historically accurate.
