Interesting early 19th century map with good detail throughout and early territorial configurations. Just west of the Mississippi River are the three districts of Girardeau, Lawrence, and Arkansas. These are remnants of French and Spanish divisions in what is present-day Missouri and Arkansas. The U.S. and Canadian boundary follows the U.S. claims into present-day British Columbia and Mexico controls all of California and the Southwest. The map is filled with place names, Indian tribes and much else of interest.
