Originally issued in 1862 by S. Augustus Mitchell, this full color map is a fascinating portrait of a growing nation during a turbulent period. The very large Dakota, Nebraska and New Mexico Territories are shown in the west, while the expanding railway system links the older east with the rapidly growing heartland. Both the Pony Express and Overland Mail routes are marked, as well as the famous Emigrants' Road, Humboldt-Hastings Road, and the Wagon Road between Salt Lake and California. Forts and new settlements of the west are also identified.
