Contested Northeast boundary map, 1843


Printed map with boundary lines drawn in 1843. The base map is an extract of the John Mitchell map of North America, originally produced in 1755.

A handwritten note in ink at top of map reads, "Mitchell's map--The dotted line shows the admitted division between England & France in 1755, & what was in 1783 the admitted line between Mass & Nova Scotia; also the recognised St. Croix, and, further, the line traced by the Commissioners on both sides, as the true line."
