This large map of North America shows Mexico in control of the Southwest and numerous Indian districts throughout central and northwest United States. An inset depicts Alaska and the Bering Sea. The northern border of the United States reflects British interests to the west, extending well into present-day Washington state. The eastern half of the border between the United States and Canada appears to have been colored incorrectly, with the border extending well north of the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River.
