DESCRIPTION

Published in November 1778, Hutchins' map was the first to display in detail the area west of the Appalachian Mountains and east of the Mississippi River. Hutchins based his map on first-hand observations of the area, and surveyed parts of the region himself. He also included descriptions of the natural features, plant-life and animals found in the region, known as "trans-Appalachia."
