This is a map of the transitional American West. Oregon Territory is massive, stretching all the way from the Pacific to the Rocky Mountains and meeting up with an extension of Texas' panhandle, which goes through present-day Denver. Upper California reaches across to Texas, and Nebraska Territory extends from Canada's border down to Texas and Indian Territory. Minnesota is a large territory as well, as the Dakotas have yet to be formed.


Condition: B

Contemporary color with toning that is more prominent along the centerfold, light offsetting, and scattered foxing.
