This very nice map with early territorial configurations includes Washington and Oregon extending to the Continental Divide, the huge Nebraska Territory extending to the Canadian border, and Kansas Territory extending to the Rocky Mountains. The Confederate Territory of Arizona lies beneath New Mexico Territory and extends from Texas to California. The border between Utah and Nevada is the rare configuration with the line deviating from vertical near Sevier Lake and following the Virgin River south-southwest. The map is filled with detail including forts, topographical and watershed, etc.
