Nord-Americanische Freistaaten


A fascinating map of the United States just prior to the Mexican-American War with an independent Texas whose southern border is still the Nueces River; from the 1845 edition of Meyer's Hand-Atlas. The numbered and lettered key at the lower left corner identifies the various states and territories ("districts") by region and by slave-holding status: New England, Middle, Southern, States on the Ohio ("Slave States" and "States without Slaves") and States west of the Mississippi ("Slave States"). Mexico at its fullest extent is bordered by Texas and the Ozark, Osage, Mandanen and Oregon territories of the United States. An important record of a critical moment in U.S. and Mexican history.
