Early map of the Southern portion of the US, extending from the Atlantic to the Mississippi and showing part of Kentucky. Georgia Western Territory extends to Mississippi and is seperately named from Georgia, with a dashed line, noting that both Georgia and the US claim this land. West and East Florida are still named. Tennessee is now a state, and Knoxville, Sullivan, Jonesboro, Greenville and Nashville all appear. Many Indian Tribes, Villages, forts and Court Houses are named. This was one of the earliest regional maps of the South published in the US and reflects the primitive state of the settlements west of the Appalachians. Backed on linen.
