The Upper Territories of the United States, 1814. Matthew Carey (1760-1839). Engraved map with original hand color in outline. Philadelphia, 1814. 22 x 17 1/4 inches sheet. The map reflects a very early appearance of The Michigan Territory (organized 1805), which had not yet appeared separately on any map. The Upper Peninsula was still not part of the Territory. Similarly, the appearance of Illinois (organized in 1809) and Indiana (organized 1800), are among the earliest on a map.
