This attractive map of the United States prominently features an independent Republic of Texas. Missouri and Arkansas form the western frontier, and a huge Missouri Territory takes up all lands to their west. In the Pacific Northwest, the boundary with Canada extends well into present-day British Columbia, reflecting United States' interests in the region. In the Great Basin, two spurious rivers connect L. Timpanogos and L. Teguayo to the Pacific Ocean.
