The huge Dakota Territory is largely unsettled and blank, with counties only shown along the eastern boundary with Minnesota. Filled with interesting information and notations including the "New Worked Emigrant Road" in southeastern Idaho, the Pacific Telegraph Route, the Overland Route to the Gold Mines which departs the Emigrant Route at Deer Creek, Wyoming and heads toward Crow territory in Montana. Many place names including forts, Indian Tribes, and more.
