Catalogue Note

Sequoyah was a proposed state to be established from the Indian Territory in the eastern part of present-day Oklahoma. In 1905 a constitutional convention held by delegates from the "Five Civilized Tribes"—the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek (Muscogee), and Seminole peoples—drafted a state constitution that was approved overwhelmingly by the territory's voters. When Congress voted against the proposal, President Theodore Roosevelt suggested a compromise that would allow the Indian Territory and Oklahoma Territory to join the Union as a single state; under the name Oklahoma, the two territories became the forty-sixth state on 16 November 1907.

"The map is of great interest" (Streeter), dividing the proposed state into forty-eight counties. The names, if not the boundaries, of twenty of the Sequoyah counties are preserved in Oklahoma.
