Creation: 1853

This map, published by Walker and James and engraved by William Keenan,was taken from J.G.M Ramsey's Annals of Tennessee. It shows the state east of the Tennessee River, including the "Army Route," Robertson's Route" and the "Great Indian War Path." The subject of this map is the Cumberland and Franklin as it was represented in 1784, when Ramsey's map originated. Of special interest to this exhibit, notice the way the Cumberland River is drawn. The river starts to look more like current day depictions as the years progress.
