This map, which extends from the south bounds of Carolina to C. Charles in Virginia, shows the location of Indian tribes in the Carolinas. It gives the chief roads or trading routes westward from Charleston, and many islands along the coast are identified by name for the first time on a printed map. In later states of map, "Azilia" was changed to "Georgia."
