This interesting map of North America shows much of the West in transition. Upper or New California takes up most of the American Southwest, with a narrow finger of Mexico squeezed in between California and the independent Republic of Texas. Above California is Oregon Territory which shows the boundary with British America along the Columbia River, reflecting British claims in the region. There is good detail for a map of this scale, particularly of the river systems.
