Phelps and Ensign's travellers' guide, and map of the United States
While intended as a traveler’s guide, this large wall map displays a number of patriotic illustrations. Historic moments such as the landing of the Pilgrims, the Battle of Bunker Hill, Washington’s farewell to his troops, and the signing of the Declaration of Independence are highlighted. The full text of this defining document and portraits of the nation’s first ten presidents are included. The map itself provides a snapshot of the nation 50 years after its founding, when the country consisted of 26 states and three territories.
