This Italian map presents rather outdated information with the United States boundary extending to the Mississippi River with a large Luigiana to its west. Georgia extends all the way to the Mississippi River and Florida is divided between East & West. Tennessee is identified as Governo di Tenessea, and several land grants are identified along the frontier including Army Lands, Wabash Company, New Jersey Company, and Illinois Company. The territory above the Ohio River is unnamed with the Illinois and Outagamie tribes located.
