This is an interesting map of most of the Northwest Territory and Michigan Territory. It has the elongated Lake Michigan and bears some resemblance to D. Burr's map of 1831. The Ottawa and Miami Indian nations are shown occupying the whole northern part of Michigan and the only settlement in the Northwest Territory (also labeled Huron Territory) is Green Bay Township. Nice detail throughout with cities, forts, Indian villages, roads, mines, and much more of interest.
