This fascinating and early map of the upper Midwest was published in Washington, D.C. by David Burr in 1836. It shows the upper portions of Ohio, Illinois, and Indiana, as well as nearly the entirety of the Wisconsin and Michigan Territories.
Michigan and Ohio had recently concluded a boundary dispute known as the Toledo War, and the territory in question is brightly highlighted in pink. A wealth of other contemporary details highlight the frontier composition of the region – fortifications, Native American villages, landmarks and other geographic features are all individually labeled. Chicago, first incorporated only 3 years prior to publication, is shown as a small settlement on the shores of Lake Michigan.
