Charming map of the US, showing wonderful ephemeral Western territorial borders. Nouvelle California is misprojected. Youta is similarly misprojected along the western front of the Rockies. Nouveau Mexique is a cross between its US Territorial and Mexican Provincial borders. Texas is oddly truncated in the North and West. A massive Inidan Territory and NW Territory dominate the plains, along with an oversized Minnesota Territry. Only Oregon Territory in the West approaches its correct borders. Many Indian Tribes, Forts and early transitional features shown. While not having an exclusive license to odd ephemeral descriptions of the west, the French were certainly the most prolific in creating these strange configurations.
