Scope and content
Map of the United States focusing on the states east of the Mississippi River with the Missouri Territory beyond. North West Territory takes in the region of present-day Wisconsin and Minnesota. Ohio, Indiana and Illinois are misplaced too far west and Lake Michigan is too small, so that Illinois does not have a border on Lake Michigan. There are several interesting notations concerning early boundaries and several early roads are shown. The southern part of Florida is shown in a inset. The map extends north to include Newfoundland.
