This early map of the United States was created at the conclusion of the American Revolution, with the new western boundary along the Mississippi River. Virginia, North Carolina, and Georgia have no western boundaries, suggesting their limits extend to the Mississippi. Florida is divided into East & West. The frontier region includes limited information up to Lake Winnipeg, with Indian names and interesting notations such as Extensive Meadows Full of Buffalos north of the Missouri River, and Country Full of Mines just north of Arkansas.
