This oversized map of the United States focuses on the large number of Indian Reservations that existed in 1894. The reservations are named and shown in dark brown overprinting. Inset maps are used where the reservation concentration prevents them showing well on the large map. Insets include Indian Territory and the Mission Indian Reservations in California. A third inset covers the Territory of Alaska. The extensive legend locates Military Stations, Capitals, County Seats, railroads, Indian Agencies, Training Schools, Boarding Schools, Day Schools, and Contract Schools. Printed by Sackett & Wilheims Litho Co., New York. A large and very detailed map that is literally filled with information.
