This map depicts the inheritance of the Tribe of Gad. The massacre of Ephraimites at the Jordan river is portrayed, as well as the impaling of the rebellious Absalom and a King David pensively waiting at the gates of Mahanaim to hear what became of his son.The tribe's emblem, a flag, appears in the bottom right corner of the map. The map is dedicated to Hugonius Windham, a financier of Fuller’s historical and cartographical works.
