This attractive early map of Arkansas shows county lines current to 1845 with the newly organized Dallas County. The map names many towns, and a network of roads criss-cross the map. The number of miles between towns is helpfully noted, and at the top of the map the steam-boat routes are noted from Little Rock to New Orleans, Pittsburgh, and Fort Gibson. The map is surrounded in a decorative border.
Original color with light toning along sheet edges.
