This large Civil War era map covers the United States west to the Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, Indian Territory and East Texas. It is very detailed and filled with information including state and county boundaries, state capitals, wagon roads, turnpikes, railroads, forts, post offices, court houses, and light houses. Southern Florida is included in an inset. It also covers the adjacent parts of Canada illustrating the railroad network. An advertisement next to the title includes a list of Lloyd's maps, most of which were available varnished, mounted on linen, with rollers. The wall map version is generally found today and it is very rare to find this large map (printed on standard paper and issued folded) in undamaged condition.

Condition: A

Clean and bright with original color. There are a couple very minor stains and tiny separations at a few fold intersections, but overall very good.
