Title

“Georgia.” Published in Joseph Scott’s The New and Univeral Gazetteer, 1799.

Description

The same map first appeared in Scott’s The United States Gazetteer in 1795. Scott and Matthew Carey vie for the claim to have published the first American atlas containing state maps. Scott’s “Georgia” includes very little detailed information. This work does not delineate the Georgia counties, which are shown in other atlas maps of this period. Scott’s waterways appear to be fairly accurate. His limited listing of Indian towns include Broken Arrow located just south of what is now Phenix City, Alabama.
