This is an attractive map of the United States enclosed in a floral border. The major update from the 1867 edition is the addition of Wyoming Territory, which was previously shown as part of Dacotah. Dacotah has not yet split into North and South Dakota, and Oklahoma remains Indian Territory. An extensive railroad network runs throughout the East, with the Transcontinental Railroad, wagon roads, and various mail routes shown in the western territories. Numerous Indian tribes are named. An inset at bottom right focuses on Newfoundland.
