A handsome and colorful map of the Pacific Northwest with Washington Territory wrapping around the newly formed state of Oregon and extending south to Utah and east to Nebraska Territory. County development is mostly limited to the coastal areas. Very little information is displayed in the area of today's Idaho except for Fort Hall, the nearby Cantonment Loring and an early reference to Soda Springs as "Beer or Soda Springs." The map locates numerous forts including Boise, Benton, Owen, Colville, and Hall. The important landmarks of Three Buttes and the Three Tetons are noted in the lower portion of Washington Territory.
