This is a revised edition of Tanner's map of Florida showing towns, forts, roads, canals, major rivers and lakes. There are references to forts, battlefields, and routes used by the Army during the Seminole War. There are also three inset maps detailing Pensacola, Tallahassee, and St. Augustine. Water routes from St. Augustine and Pensacola to various ports are described along the upper and lower margins.
Lovely, muted original color with minor toning in margins.
