This is an 1866 Samuel Harries Daddow map of the United States illustrating its coal fields. Depicting the entire continental United States, fifteen different types of coal fields are numerically identified, including Pennsylvania Anthracite. Colors indicate other deposits, including tertiary coal fields, carboniferous limestone, and areas of uncertain deposits. A profile view of the altitudes along the 38th Parallel presents the wide range of topography from coast to coast, highlighting the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Rocky Mountains, the Great Plains, the Mississippi Valley, and the White Mountains.
