Nice small map with an extended Arkansas Territory that touches the border of Mexico (Texas) with the Red River serving as part of the southern border. The region to the north of Arkansas Territory and lying between the Mississippi River and the Rocky Mountains, with the exception of Missouri, is noted as Western Territory and contains the names of numerous Indian Tribes. Texas is labeled as Spanish Territy. Wisconsin is a large territory that includes today's Minnesota and extends to the Red River. Inset "Continuation of Florida" on the same scale locates Key Largo, St. Augustine, Cape Florida, C. Tancra, etc.
