The full title for this printed map with James D. Graham's handwritten signature is, "Map of the boundary lines between the United States and the adjacent British provinces from the mouth of the River St. Croix to the intersection of the parallel of 45 degrees of north latitude with the River St. Lawrence near St. Regis showing the lines as respectively claimed by the United States and Great Britain under the treaty of 1783, as awarded by the king of the Netherlands, and as settled in 1842 by the Treaty of Washington."

The inset shows Rouse's Point and its vicinity on Lake Champlain showing the positions selected for the fortifications. This map was compiled by Lieut. T. J. Lee and W.M.C. Fairfax under the direction of Major J.D. Graham.
