Large, colorful and historically significant map. Oklahoma Territory was created in 1889 and this is possibly the only Census Office map showing the two territories together. Both territories would clamor for admission to statehood. The Dawes Commission would soon extinguish Indian land titles that led to eventual statehood for the Oklahoma territory. Documentary back up for the Indian titles are noted in each of the tribal areas with marginal notes for historical information on the various Indian Lands. Scale of 12 miles to the inch, legend in upper right. Lower right box lists the railroads authorized to operate in Indian Territory. This is the rarer issue from the 11th Census and should not be confused with the more common General Land Office issue.
