Description

Nice example of Stockdale's map of the Northern and Mid-Atlantic states.

The map is most notable for the many land grants showing Western Territory, which then included Ohio, Tennessee and the Old Northwest Territory. The grants include Illinois Company, Army Lands, Wagbash Company, New Jersey Company, Ohio Company, and the 7 Ranges, along with the Donation Lands from the Commonwealth of Virginia and General Clark's Grant 1500 acres.

Many settlements are noted in the West, along with early forts (Miami, Pitt, Venango, Chartres) and other interesting features. St. Louis appears on the map, as does Louisiville, St. Genevieve, New Madrid, St. Philips, Cahokir, and the Kaskaskais Village. A nice post-revolutionary war map of the region.

A very nice example.
