A very historical map illustrating the British colonies after the Treaty of Paris that marked the end of the French and Indian War in America. The treaty spelled the end of the French colonies in North America with minor exceptions. Spain ceded east and west Florida to Great Britain and France relinquished to Spain title to the Louisiana Territory and established the Mississippi River as a British - Spanish Boundary. The map reflects the claims of the southern colonies that their charters extended to the Mississippi River. Also of interest are the names and locations of many Indian tribes and nations located away from the more populated areas of English settlements.
