Large and very detailed German map covering the United States with parts of Canada and Mexico. There is superb detail of the railroads and emigrant roads. This map was initially issued just prior to the Civil War. It has been updated to show the current state and territory boundaries but the coloring still shows regional divisions, including the slave states.
