A detailed map from Mitchell's school atlas. Names many Indian tribes and villages, "settlements" (missionary and otherwise), and features such as lead mines and the Great American Desert. Captions inform the reader of "the route of the Missouri Traders to Santa Fe," and locates the pass where "loaded waggons [sic] may travel" through the Rockies. Large territories (Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri) extend to the Canadian border while Oregon Territory encompasses Vancouver Island. Captions in the Texas Republic note "extensive prairies" and "Herds of Buffaloes with Wild Horses." Population and navigation statistics contribute to this Manifest Destiny era map.
