Map of Georgia, 1829

Reverand Adiel Sherwood included this map in the 1829 edition of his book A Gazetteer of the State of Georgia. The map gives a rare view of Georgia in the brief period of time between 1825, when the Cherokee Nation moved its capital to New Echota, Georgia, and 1838, when the U.S. Army forcibly removed the Cherokee to land in modern-day Oklahoma (known today as the Trail of Tears).

Map of Georgia, 1829. From the Georgia Historical Society Map Collection, MS 1361-MP 079.
