This map from the survey of Henry M. Lusher shows northern half of Mississippi and adjacent parts of Alabama, Tennessee and Arkansas. The boundary line between the Chickasaw and Choctaw nations is shown beginning at the Mississippi River. Map also shows Indian settlements, white settlements, river landings, roads and trails as well as changes made to the Tennessee-Mississippi state boundary.
In 1818 the Chickasaws gave up their claims to what is now West Tennessee and western Kentucky. In the early 1830s, the Chickasaws ceded over 6,000,000 acres of land in Mississippi in exchange for lands west of the Mississippi River. John Coffee, former general of the Tennessee volunteers during the War of 1812, represented the United States in many of the treaty negotiations with the Southeastern Tribes.
