J. Wightman published this folding map of Michigan Territory – then consisting of the lower peninsula – in New York City for settlers making the journey westward. Michigan’s Constitution was adopted in 1835, although it would be another two years before Congressional recognition allowed the state to enter the union. The map shows the location of towns, Indian villages, forts, roads, rivers, lakes; all necessary information for the traveler. The inhabited parts of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin are also included.
