This map originally appeared in 1836 in the "Report of the Dragoons under command of Colonel Henry Dodge to the Rocky Mts. during the Summer of 1835." The expedition left Ft. Leavenworth and traveled the Platte River and its southern Fork, continuing to Bent's trading house and then back to Ft. Leavenworth. While this map shows the Santa Fe Road, the route of Col. Dodge is not depicted. The tribal lands are outlined in color. An inset provides tabulations of the numbers of Indians and a listing of estimated acres of land assigned to these Tribes.

References: Wheat [TM] 418.
