Shows the expedition's route up the Red River Valley and illustrates topography, hydrology and location of military posts. Provides a table of distances from Sauk Rapids on the Mississippi to various locations. A scarce issue that is not to be confused with Pope's similar map of 1850.
Issued folding, now backed with archival tissue. A few minor spots, still very good.
