This is an attractive map of the United States enclosed in a floral border. The map shows one large Dacotah Territory attached to the region that would become Wyoming. Arizona is still in possession of the tip of present-day Nevada, and Utah is oversized as the newly formed Nevada borders on the 115th meridian. Oklahoma is Indian Territory. An extensive railroad network runs throughout the East, with proposed railroads, wagon roads, emigrant routes, and the Pony Express Trail shown in the western territories. Insets of Hampton Roads and Norfolk Harbor, and Pensacola Bay are shown in the Atlantic. Copyright date 1860, but published in 1865.
