Lucia Wadsworth's Geography Notebook, 1794

Contributed by Maine Historical Society

This map shows the United States as understood by a school child in 1794. The Longitudes are different, because the international community had not agreed upon a standard longitude in 1794. Note how few states there are west of Pennsylvania. In 1794, the boundaries and territory of the continental United States were unexplored and unmapped.
