Early map of Kentucky and Tennessee. Shows towns, major routes, waterways and topographical features. Published after the passage of the Indian Removal Act 1830, but before Cherokee Removal in 1838, this map does not label Cherokee Territory in the southeast territory as most maps from this time period do.
David H. Burr (1803-1875) served as Topographer to the United States Post Office and Geographer to the House of Representatives and was widely known for his accuracy and attention to detail. His "Universal Atlas" was the first to map each of the United States individually.
