This lot includes two numbered, but untitled maps that were published in the report "Moneys Due the Cherokee Nation," which is Document No. 16, 54th Congress, 1st Session. Map 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, earlier report concluded that the Cherokees were due an additional $1.1 million under the various treaties, the 1900 report denies the claim. The maps are still bound in the complete, 32 pp report, this being the 56th Senate reprint of the identical report and maps from the 54th Senate.


Condition: A+

Report and maps are mint. Disbound report with the last page and maps separated from the main report.
