This region was explored by Capt. W.F. Raynolds in 1859-60. His report was much delayed due to a protracted illness. It was finalized when mining developments and conflicts with Indian tribes in the region made it important. The map includes post 1860 developments such as Ft. Casper and Camp Marshall on the upper North Platte, several new forts and emigrant roads. Lightly toned and backed with Japanese tissue to repair some fold separations. Some chipping in margins, else fine.
