Capturing a critical moment in American history, this map shows the upstart nation in a period of tremendous westward expansion. The Northwest Territory can be seen subdivided into Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and the Michigan Territory. State capitals are listed for the first three as Chillicothe, Vincennes, and Kaskaskia, respectively, but otherwise urban centers are limited in the west.
Both Indiana and Illinois reflect early northern borders that will subsequently be modified to obtain access to Lake Michigan. Numerous forts are also shown throughout the region, reflecting its long status as a battleground during colonial America and even after Independence.
