Map. Hand colored lithograph. 19 1/2". x 21".
Trail of tears map of North America showing both Quaker annual meetings and American Indian lands. Indexed with color key for "Indian nations" and yearly meetings. Repairs to lower left margin. Includes population statistics for Indian tribes. Catawba, Uchee and Natchez Indians are shown to be "extinct". The map was made for the yearly Quaker (Society of Friends) Aborigines' Committee of the Meetings of Sufferings. This was an annual meeting regarding the wrongs done to indigenous peoples worldwide. The map focuses on the United States and shows the country in its entirety, as well as the Republic of Texas. The border between the United States and British Columbia is missing, because in 1844, it hadn't been determined yet.
