This color map features the post offices, post roads, canals, and railroads of Kentucky and Tennessee. Major cities and towns, rivers and creeks, and county lines are featured. Postal routes are displayed in the categories of mail, post, coach, stage, sulkey, crossroads, railroads, and canals.
The importance of the operations of the United States Postal Service during this time period is highlighted by the creation of such a series of postal maps. Emerging modes of transportation continued to benefit from the support of the Postal Service. As the Service strove to improve means of mail delivery from Revolutionary times onward, it embraced the development of congressionally-authorized "postal roads" as represented in this map. David H. Burr served as the official topographer for the U.S.P.S. Dept."
