this attractive small map of the young nation is filled with a surprising amount of information. The map extends past the Mississippi River to show part of the new Louisiana Territory. Georgia's western boundary is the Mississippi, and West Florida takes in the coastal region from the Chattahotcha River to the Mississippi River. Indian tribes are prominently named in the western territories. The key at left refers to 15 states, not including Tennessee, although it is shown on the map. The Twenty League Line is depicted off the east coast.
