Map shows the extent of the early United States with Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana demarcating the western frontier. The engraving shows Texas as a part of Mexico, but the colorist has depicted the Republic of Texas, suggesting this map was published shortly after independence. To the north, an unnamed Missouri Territory reaches westward including the Great American Desert where several Indian Districts are named. The Huron District takes the place of Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Oregon District takes in present-day Oregon and Washington and encroaches slightly into present-day British Columbia. An unnamed river links L. Timpanogos with the Pacific at the Bay of Sir F. Drake.
