This map shows Toledo as part of Michigan which was in dispute with the state of Ohio, a point which would result in the “Toledo War” in 1835 and would not be fully resolved until 1836 when Toledo was awarded to Ohio, and Michigan received the Upper Peninsula.

This map first appeared in the 1834 printing of The Tourist’s Pocket Map, with this copy being the third printing. Insets detail the available “Steam Boat Routes” and “Principal Stage Routes” around the state. A large portion of the Lower Peninsula is described as Michillimackinac County, with the visible portion of the Upper Peninsula simply known as Chippeway.
