This attractive, historical map depicts the new State of Minnesota (admitted 1858) and Dakota Territory (admitted as two states in 1889). Counties are named and in contrasting colors.
Topographical features (with descriptive) are shown. Major towns, cities, railroads (existing and proposed), and water routes are identified. Indian tribes are located throughout. A very informative view of the area during the American Civil War.
