From the 1863 Johnson and Ward edition of the Family Atlas, this is one of the rarest and most desirable states of the Johnson's Dakota, Nebraska and Kansas map. In this example Nebraska is depicted with a long panhandle extending from Iowa all the way to Fremont's Peak. To the north, Dakota is a massive and newly partitioned territory extending from Minnesota to the Rocky Mountains and from Nebraska to the border with British Columbia. An embryonic Colorado is also illustrated, with a few towns and North Park, Middle Park and South Park noted. This map also notes the three routes proposed for the Pacific Railroad: the Governor Stevens route through Dakota, the Lieutenant Beswith route through Nebraska, and the Captain Gunnison route through Colorado and Kansas. Various American Indian Nations are referenced throughout as well as countless geographical features including mountains, lakes, passes, rivers, rapids, etc.
Published by A. J. Johnson and Ward as plate number 55 in the 1863 edition of Johnson's New Illustrated Family Atlas.
