This handsome map shows the expansion of the United States into the western frontier where a great swath across the plains is labeled the Great Desert. Arkansas Territory extends into present-day Oklahoma, and the Northwestern Territory contains the future Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Missouri Territory stretches as far west as present-day Montana. Texas is still part of Mexico. The map provides good information on the early roads and locates Indian villages, mines, and forts.
Fine impression and nice original color with faint toning along the fold, else near fine.
