This uncommon German map delineates 24 eastern states and the territories of Missouri and Arkansas. Lands to the west are labelled as Indian districts including Huron, Sioux, Osage, and Ozark to name a few. A key at bottom left lists the states by region, and identifies Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri and Arkansas as slave-holding. Texas is named and still part of Mexico. Much of the interior is colored in light green which appears to be an indication of lower elevation (plains regions). Drawn by D. Volter.
