This is an unusual Civil War map in that it gives information on territorial claims, both by the Confederate States and the Federal Union, including areas reclaimed from the Rebellion. The depiction of the Western Territories is particularly interesting. A large Dakota extends all the way to the Rockies bordering Washington and two offset rectangles make up the newly formed Idao - an unusual configuration for Idaho. A table below the title gives the population, both free and slaves, of each color-coded area.
