This is an early American map depicting Georgia Territory extending from the Atlantic seaboard to the Mississippi River, with East and West Florida along the Gulf Coast.

Fifteen early counties are shown along the Atlantic coast and the Savannah River. Several trading paths are noted in the west. Mobile, Pensacola, and New Orleans are noted. Engraved by Amos Doolittle and published by Thomas & Andrews, Boston.
