This map shows lands ceded to numerous Indian Tribes and was intended as a railroad map of Indian Territory. The Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad runs north-south along the eastern border of Indian Territory, and was the first railroad to enter Texas from the north, reaching Dallas by 1886. The proposed route for the Texas Pacific Railroad is also shown, which was intended to extend between Marshall, TX and San Diego, CA, but instead was connected with the Southern Pacific Railroad at Sierra Blanca, Texas in 1881.
Original color with light toning along the centerfold and sheet edges. There are short centerfold separations confined to the top and bottom blank margins.
