This crisply engraved German map includes large Oregon, Missouri, Arkansas and Northwest territories. Michigan Territory is in an unusual configuration, including the southern portion of present-day Wisconsin. Oregon Territory extends well north into British Columbia, reflecting the United States interests in the region. Mexico is in control of the southwest and Texas is not named. A speculative river crosses the Great Basin from Lake Timpanogos. The map is filled with detail of Indian tribes, drainage and topography.
