This 1794 map of Tennessee (still the Territory South of the Ohio River or, more commonly, the Southwest Territory) shows the Cumberland, Tennessee, Ohio, and Mississippi rivers as well as some detail of the creeks across the territory. Knoxville, Nashville, and Clarksville are the only settlements indicated. Originally published in the noted American geographer Jedidiah Morse's The American geography, or, A view of the present situation of the United States of America.
