This interesting map of the United States shows Mexico encompassing the majority of the Southwest and California. Texas is shown as an independent Republic in its smaller configuration. Most of the states east of the Mississippi River are named and outlined, except for Wisconsin, which is called District Huron. Besides Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas, land west of the Mississippi River is separated into districts, including District of the Mandines, District of the Osages, District of the Ozark, District of the Sioux, and District of the Oregon. Canada is called Nouvelle Bretagne. The map includes decorative borders with graphic elements in the corners and four distance scales.
