Description

A map of Powhatan and the surrounding area.

Biographical/Historical Note

While this map was created in 1854 once Arkansas was a state, it provides critical evidence for the Territorial period. John A. Lindsay was suing for the right to operate a ferry near Powhatan and to establish a road connecting a nearby town. During the course of the court trial, a map was produced to support Lindsay's claim. Marked on the map are several homes, ferries, and routes which were established during the Territorial period like Black's Ferry. This map shows the locations of these many places which otherwise, would be unknown and lost to time.
