1822 Yaeger, Joseph - drawn four years after Illinois acquired statehood, this map demonstrates how sparcely the northeastern regions of the state were settled at that time. The subdivision into survey townships, as required by the Northwest Ordinance of 1787, would not reach the Chicago region until 1823 [see Fielding Lucasí map]. The Indian Boundary Lines based on the Treaty of St. Louis of 1816, the village of Chicago and the Chicago portage are shown.
