See Description

This lot includes 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"). Although the original report concluded that the Cherokees were due an additional $1.1 million under the various treaties, the 1900 report denies the claim. Complete with the original 32 pp report and the subsequent 4 pp decision transmitted by Judson Harmon, Attorney-General.

Both maps have a little color burn in blank areas around the map, still very good. The report is near fine.
