This uncommon map depicts the United States in the early part of the nineteenth century. There are some unusual configurations west of the Appalachians including an Indiana Territory that extends from Manitoba to New Madrid, Missouri as well as an oddly shaped Ohio. Tennessee extends too far to the east and an unnamed region occupies the space between Georgia and the Mississippi River. Louisiana is still shown as a French possession and Florida is divided between East and West. Numerous Indian tribes are named and located along with good detail of the river system.
