Marvelous regional map of Missouri, Illinois and Indiana , showing the early county configurations, towns, roads and Indian details.
The northern portion of Illinois is largely unsettled, with a massive Joe Davis County running the width of the Territory and a note showing the Indian Boundary of 1829. The easternmost county below Joe Davis is unnamed. A proposed Canal from Chicago to the Illinois River is shown. Missouri's northern counties are also largely incomplete and unnamed. The Northern portion of Indiana is a massive Putawatomies and Miamis Reserve. The region west of the Mississippi and North of Missouri is the Sioux District and is traversed by the R. des Moines.
A wonderful early map of the region. Based in part by information derived from Henry Schenk Tanner, who receives credit in the lower left corner of the map.
