An attractive map of the United States just after the Mexican-American War, with Texas depicted in its stovepipe configuration and Upper California encompassing the entire Southwest. The remainder of the west is divided into Districts, including Oregon, Mandanen, Osagen, and Ozark. The majority of the state names are keyed to a table at bottom left, which identifies many of the states as "slave states" and "states without slaves." An interesting and uncommon issue.
Original color with light toning and foxing.
