Attractive map showing Louisiana, Arkansas and Missouri as the farthest western states. Alabama and Illinois are still territories, and a large Northwest Territory extends north to encompass Winnipeg. West of the Mississippi River is a huge and largely blank Western Territory United States. An inset of the Florida peninsula at bottom right labels Lake Okeechobee as Lake Macaco. The map was engraved by J. Gellatly.
