This early map of Alabama is from the French edition of Carey & Lea's American Atlas with French text surrounding the map on three side of the large folio sheet. County development is on-going, with some counties showing no towns or cities. Indian lands are shown as well, with an area in the western part of the state for the Choctaws and the area to the east split between the Cherokees and Upper Creeks. Roads are shown including Government Road from Natchez to Nashville and Genl. Jacksons Road from New Orleans, following the War of 1812. The text details the state's topography, climate, population (almost 128K), history, and other statistical information.
