The map extends to include New Zealand and the Solomon Islands in the Pacific, and the Cape Verde Islands in the Atlantic. Alaska is Russian America, Oregon Territory takes in the whole Northwest, New California occupies the entire Southwest, and Texas is shown with a huge panhandle. The coast of Antarctica is somewhat defined.
