A fine map of the region of present-day New Mexico and Arizona with great detail throughout. Topography and hydrology are well shown as are Army posts, villages and towns, military and explorers' routes, springs, passes, etc. A long legend provides an excellent source for information on the map's details. Three unrelated Civil War battlefield plans are inset at right. The map is dated 1864.
Lovely example considering that these maps were printed on paper that is normally found browned and brittle.
