A color map depicting Tennessee around 1826, soon after the cession by treaty of Chickasaw lands between the Tennessee and Mississippi Rivers and Cherokee lands in East Tennessee. Counties are outlined, including the newly formed West Tennessee counties, and county seats are shown along with topographical features. Recently formed (by the New Madrid earthquakes of 1812-13) Reelfoot Lake appears as an elongated "Wood Lake" and "Swamp" that stretches all the way from the Kentucky line to the Forked Deer River in Tipton County. Muscle Shoals in Alabama can also be seen, in addition to some Cherokee lands in southeast Tennessee. Compare to Map 670. Roads are depicted and named.
Since Lucas's 1822 map, newly created counties include Fayette, Tipton, Weakley, Obion, McNairy, Haywood, Hardeman, Gibson, Fentress, and Dyer.
