Description


From the 1862 Johnson and Ward edition of the 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 drawn with a long panhandle, with the state 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 illustrated, with a few towns and North Park, Middle Park and South Park noted. The three proposed routes for the Pacific Railroad are also noted: 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. The whole is surrounded by the strapwork style border common to Johnson's atlas work from 1860 to 1863.

This map was published by A. J. Johnson and Ward as plate number 55 in the 1862 edition of Johnson's New Illustrated Family Atlas.
