This small map depicts the United States confined to east of the Mississippi River, with the recently acquired Louisiana to its west. Georgia extends to the Mississippi River, and the unnamed Northwest Territory occupies the lands to the north of the Ohio River. Numerous forts and Indian tribes are located in this region, along with bounty land grants for the Illinois Company and the New Jersey Company along the Mississippi River. Florida is under U.S. control and is no longer divided between East & West, and is continued in an inset on the same scale. Engraved by Thomson & Hall.
Light toning confined to the blank margins.
