This small black and white map is packed with details. Originally published in the 1882 Indiana Geological Report of the State of Indiana, the map accompanied a short article entitled “Indian Names of Water Courses in the State of Indiana ” by H.W. Beckwith, Esq., Danville, Illinois, under the section on Archaeology. Indian names of the waterways are provided in italics with common names in roman type. For example: Wabash R. Wah-bah-shih-ka. The article explains further by providing the origin of the names including tribe or nation.
