This large format map of the state is filled with details including the location of towns, cities, wagon roads, and both existing and proposed railroads. The map also identifies several lead and copper mines in the southeastern section of the state, commonly called the "lead belt" (this region of the country produces over 70% of the U.S. supply of lead). Advertisements for "Lloyd's Great Military Map" and "Topographical Map of the State of Virginia" flank the map image.
