Title

“The Tourist’s Pocket Map of the State of Georgia Exhibiting its Internal Improvements, Roads, Distances, &c. By J. H. Young. Philadelphia: Published by Hinman & Dutton, 1837.”

Description

J. H. Young’s map provides detailed information about Georgia on the eve of major railroad construction and the creation of Atlanta. It shows stagecoach roads, distances between towns, counties, waterways, and even land lots. A proposed canal connects Savannah with the Ocmulgee, Oconee, and Altamaha Rivers. Charts give the mileage for steamboat travel from the coast to Augusta and to Columbus and the distances by ship from Savannah to Charleston and to Picolata, Florida on the St. John’s River, a site of military action during the Second Seminole War earlier in the decade.
