Johnson's Minnesota and Dakota.

This is a beautiful example of Johnson and Ward’s 1866 map of Minnesota and Dakota. It covers both states as well as parts of adjacent Wisconsin and Iowa. This map predates the splitting of the Dakotas and instead depicts them as a single great state bound on the west by the Missouri River. The proposed northern route for the Pacific Railroad runs diagonally in the northwesterly direction across both Minnesota and Dakota. The map also notes several American Indian nations including the Dakotah, Odjibwe, Assiniboin, Aikara, Minitarree and others. The map is color coded according to county and notes towns, cities, rivers, railways and other topographical features.
Features the fretwork style border common to Johnson's atlas work from 1863 to 1869. Published by Johnson and Ward as plate no. 64 in the scarce 1866 edition of Johnson's Family Atlas.
