Schoolcraft used a simplified version of Emanuel Bowen's important early map of colonial Georgia to highlight the Indian tribes and villages in the region. The map covers from Charlestown to the Mississippi River and extends into Florida to below St. Augustine in the vicinity of the unnamed Cape Canaveral. In addition to the updated information on the Indian villages, many roads and trading paths are depicted, and there are significant differences to the watershed east of the Flint River.
