A handsome map covering the country from the Atlantic Ocean westward to just beyond the Mississippi River. A large Missouri Territory extends north to Canada and borders Northwest Ter.y, which is comprised of today's Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Florida is divided into the Spanish possessions of East and West Florida. The map is filled with place names, forts, Indian villages, roads, and more. A pair of distance scales and a simple, oval title cartouche decorate the map.
