America Transformed: This large wall map details the United States at the onset of the 19th century. The young nation’s western boundary is the Mississippi River, based on the 1783 Paris Peace Treaty. In addition to the original 13 states, three new ones appear: Vermont, Kentucky, and Tennessee. As Euro-American settlers moved across the Appalachian Mountains, they encountered Native and French communities, including the Tsalagi (Cherokee), Chikasha (Chickasaw), Chahta (Choctaw), and Mvskoke (Creek) who inhabited expansive ancestral lands in the southern portion of this trans-Appalachian region. An image of Niagara Falls, which became part of the nation’s popular iconography, adorns the cartouche.
