Excellent early map of the region bounded by the Mississippi River, Lake Michigan and Lake Erie and Georgia in the South, from the London edition of Morse's American Geography. One of the earliest maps to name Tennessee Government, spelling Tennessee correctly, unlike later maps by Carey. The two major regional delineations are Western Territory, encompassing Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio and Illinois Country. Ft. Massac on the Shawanee is shown, as are the camps of the Illinois and New Jersy Company's on the Mississippi River and the Wabash Company on the Fox. Post Vincent is noted, prior to Ft. Vincennes. Ft. Joseph is shown southeast of Lake Michigan. An handful of Indian Tribes are named on tributaries of the Upper Ohio River and a small Indiana appears at the western edge of Maryland. Sandusky, Ft. Miami and Ft. Detroit are also located. The lands of the Ohio Company are also shown. In all, a nice example of one of the earliest maps of the region published after the American Revolution, predating the works of Carey and Reid.
