This map, interesting and infrequently offered, extends from Ohio to the Rocky Mountains, north of the Ohio River and Indian Territory. It shows Nebraska Territory (created in 1854), west of Minnesota and north of Kansas. Kansas extends to the Rocky Mountains and includes the regions allocated to the Arapahos & Cheyennes. The Indian Territory is indicated for the Cherokees. Original outline color with red showing railroad detail extending west to Iowa City. Fancy titling. Drawn by E.F. Beadle and published by Miller, Orton & Mulligan.
