This great little map provides a view of North America in 1840. The border between the United States and Canada reflects the U.S. interests into present-day British Columbia, extending to about 55° North latitude. Alaska is Amerique Russe, and Texas is an independent republic. Mexico controls the bulk of the West. Below is a short history of 28 regions and cities that are keyed to the map via color-coding and numbering.
Original outline color. Issued folding, now flattened with repair on a short binding tear, not affecting map.
