Large scale map of the Territory is from the annual report of the Department of Interior's General Land Office. Finely detailed map shows Tucson as the capitol and depicts a very early naming of Phoenix, having recently been shown as Maricopa Villages. Survey progress designates subdivided townships. Arizona has only six counties: Yavapai, Mohave, Yuma, Maricopa, Pinal and Pima. The sheet locates towns, county seats, Indian and Military reservations, military forts and camps, topography through hachure, and watershed. Good detail of the Grand Canyon reflects Powell's expedition of 1869. The extent of railroad grants is portrayed. A very interesting map filled with historic information.
