In the west is one Dakota and a large Idaho Territory which encompasses modern day Montana and Wyoming. Arizona still controls the southern tip of Nevada. Large insets of major port cities surround the map and include New Orleans, Charleston, Baltimore and Washington D.C. Map dated 1861, but border and territorial boundaries indicate a later publication. Very attractive color with a bit of light foxing mostly in margins, overall very good.
