This is a quite handsome map of the eastern United States. It shows Missouri with a flat western boundary and Michigan and lake Michigan is somewhat misshapen. Large Wisconsin and Iowa territories occupy the northwest. A tiny sliver of the independent Republic of Texas appears at lower left. Atlanta, Miami, Orlando and other currently large cities do not appear on this map. Details include topography, rivers, lakes, roads, towns and cities, Indian tribes, etc.
