This uncommon map exactly matches the configuration of the State of Sequoyah the Indians attempted to create in 1905 in an effort to thwart the expansive tendencies of the United States. The regions of the Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, Seminole, Cherokee, and several other Indian tribes are named. The Territory of Oklahoma hovers ominously in the northwest. This historical map was compiled and drawn by R.P. Lowe, traced and lettered by Wm. Naylor. Lithography by the Norris Peters Company.
