Numerous forts are located including Lauderdale, Howell, Foster, Thompson, Adams, and many more. This map was produced during a period of relative peace between the U.S. and Seminole Nation. The third and final Seminole War waged between 1855-1858. Extensive legend gives survey status for townships. From the Surveyor General's Office in St. Augustine, by B.A. Putnam, Surveyor General.
