Produced by prominent Spanish cartographer, engineer, military officer, and land surveyor Vicente Sebastián Pintado, this early representation of the West Feliciana Parish provides the viewer a glimpse back to its early settlement. Situated on the banks of the Mississippi River, West Feliciana came under Spanish control in the 1780s during the American Revolution. Following the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, the United States declared the parish part of the territory acquired under the land deal. Feliciana Parish was established in 1810 as part of the Territory of Orleans, which would become Louisiana two years later while being admitted to the United States.
Pintado produced numerous surveys thorough the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries compiling these surveys into maps to be used for geo-political, property ownership, and land grants. He created a large body of work and was active for nearly four decades in the Americas. Pintado was appointed Mayor of nearby Bayou Sara in the year following this maps publication. The Feliciana Parish was divided between east and west in 1824 as the region was experiencing significant growth and transitioning into part of the Baton Rouge metropolitan area.
While the significant importing and exporting in New Orleans' busy port to the South drove economic growth throughout the region, this map's minimal aesthetic and distinctive style make it an authentic piece of early American cartographical history. Pintado's attention to detail and property ownership is utilized by genealogists and historians to develop the region's evolution and immediately transports the viewer back in time.
