WHILE THE MAP CONCENTRATES ON EASTERN PENNSYLVANIA, IT DOES COVER MARYLAND AND THE CHESAPEAKE BAY SOUTH OF OXFORD AND ANNAPOLIS.

THE BOUNDARY LINES BETWEEN PENNSYLVANIA, MARYLAND AND DELAWARE ARE EXTREMELY CRUDE AND INACCURATE, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE MAP WAS INCLUDED IN A PUBLICATION PUT OUT DURING THE YEAR WHEN THE MASON-DIXON COMMISSION WAS COMPLETING ITS WORK.
