John Russell: Map of the State of Kentucky and the Adjoining Territories

Map: USA8949
 
Cartographer: John Russell
Title: Map of the State of Kentucky and the Adjoining Territories
Date: 1794
Published: London
Width: 19 inches / 49 cm
Height: 15 inches / 39 cm
Map ref: USA8949
Description:
Early map of the newly-established state of Kentucky (statehood had only been granted in 1792). Company lands and military land grants are also shown. In western Tennessee (at this point still an 'Incorporated Territory' without statehood), a large parcel of land has been reserved for settlement by Revolutionary War veterans from South Carolina who had been promised land grants in exchange for their service. A rough network of "traces" or tracks is shown connecting the existing settlements.
