   M-8984: Thomson's Map of Southern United States - c. 1817


 

Description:

M-8984: (Image: 19 1/2 x 23'') ''SOUTHERN PROVINCES OF THE UNITED STATES'' Edinburgh: John Thomson, c. 1817. Fine engraved map with beautiful original hand-coloring.

This map shows the United States from Long Island to the Florida boundary and from the Atlantic westward past the Mississippi River. Of particular interest is the vast information provided regarding Native American Indians - present and ancient villages, hunting grounds, and boundary lines.

Georgia is shown with the boundaries extending to the Mississippi River, (as it appeared prior to the Mississippi Territory created in 1798). The Tennessee boundary extends eastward into present-day North Carolina. Various Land Development Consortiums, prevalent during the early period of U.S. western expansion, are located such as the Illinois Companyand Jersey Company- west of Kentucky. These companies were comprised of men from Virginia, Maryland, Philadelphia and London who held claims to land in the Illinois Country and sought to establish towns and develop trade. They were terminated in 1784 after Virginia ceded her western land.
