A colorful map with great detail issued just five years before Arizona attained statehood. The map clearly shows Indian Reservations, Military Reservations (Fort Apache, Fort Grant, Fort Huachuca, and Fort Whipple) and Forest Reserves via different colors. A huge Grand Canyon Forest Reserve is shown and the new Petrified Forest National Monument (established in 1906) is located east of Holbrook. Details include watershed, mountains, railroads, wagon roads, private claims, unsurveyed townships, etc. A spectacular example of this chart.
