This is the early 1864 edition in this series of maps. Arizona still has the county configurations of the old New Mexico Territory, with the addition of Castle Dome and Ewell counties in the south. The Utah/Nevada border is now at 115°. This is a completely new plate with much changed in watershed and mountain detail with several of the earlier notations removed. Details the U.S. Mail routes, the Emigrant roads to California, the proposed railroad route through Utah, Nevada and California, and the Pony Express trail.
