Splendid little map covering the area east of the Mississippi River from Niagara Falls to Port Royal, SC. It shows major towns and cities, Indian villages and tribal territory, English and French forts, boundaries, trails and topography. According to Cumming, the location of Indian tribes, especially west of the Blue Ridge Mountains, is one of the fullest in a printed map up to this time.
