Two numbered, but untitled maps that were published in the report "Moneys Due the Cherokee Nation." No. 1 consists of portions of North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee. Colored boundaries and a key indicate the land involved in the treaties of 1817, 1819, and 1835 (20" x 12"). No. 2 shows the Cherokee Strip and the Cherokee Outlet in Indian Territory. Colored boundaries indicate various treaties and possessions of other tribes (25" x 13"). The report, not included with this lot, concluded that the Cherokees were due an additional $1.1 million under the various treaties.


Condition: A

Folding, as issued. Both maps with a hint of toning along one fold and a couple tiny fold intersections splits, still very good.
