This very early map presents the northern part of the newly-formed United States. It covers the region from northern Virginia to Maine (Machasuzet Bay), and westward to include Lake Erie. The map has good topographical detail, and it also includes numerous settlements, forts, and Indian villages. It locates Baltimore, Annapolis, Alexandria, New York, Boston, Ft. Halifax, and much more. There are four distance scales at upper left.
