Nice map of the states that extends just beyond the Mississippi River. The region to the west of the Mississippi River is labeled Old Louisiana now Missouri Ter. with the exception of the state of Louisiana, which has an odd, truncated shape. A portion of this region west of the Mississippi River is also called New Iberia. Florida is divided into East and West, with New Orleans located in West Florida. A number of Indian tribes are located in addition to cities and forts. This map appeared in John Bradley's scarce Universal Atlas, for the Use of Schools, also titled New General Atlas, which appeared between 1818-20.
