Published by noted Scottish mapmaker John Melish in 1820, this depiction of Mississippi shows the state just three years after it’s inclusion into the United States. Melish was one of the earliest surveyors to produce maps and created the first map of the United States that extended to the Pacific Ocean. He had settled in Philadelphia in 1811 and is considered one of the most prominent cartographers of the United States in its early years. His publication of the United Stated is deemed to have been influential in the westward expansion doctrine known as manifest destiny.
The Mississippi River played a pivotal role in the economic development of the region, and towns were typically established due to their proximity to the river. The Mississippi is one of the most iconic waterways in America and holds a unique place in the history and lore of the nation. The river allowed trade into the mid-west and became vital for the economic success of the gulf coast, including Mississippi and Louisiana. The river also allowed further exploration into the western portion of the united states, encouraging growth and settlement west of the river as well as into northern areas.
Melish’s maps were renowned for their accuracy and fulfilled the contemporary need for precise cartography. As Mississippi entered the United States, it was in a period of significant transition in the early 19th century, and the distinctive aesthetic of this illustration immediately transports the viewer back in time and is an authentic piece of cartographical history.
