Published in the French edition of Carey & Lea's American Atlas, this map is directly derived from John Melish's seminal map of the United States. The large Arkansas Territory takes in most of present-day Oklahoma; the new state of Missouri has a vertical western border; Michigan Territory includes a portion of present-day eastern Wisconsin; and the Northwest Territory takes in present day Wisconsin and Minnesota. The balance of the Midwest is included in the Territoire d'Oregon and is filled with information on numerous Indian tribes. The Grand Desert Americain takes in the southern plains region. Texas is a part of Mexico.
