Scarce map of the Plains and Northern Rocky Mountains, which was intended to illustrate a Bill before the United States House of Representatives for the creation of a Fort in the town of Sheridan, Wyoming.

The map provides a detailed look at the various Indian Reservations (Yellow), Military Reservations (Red) and Timber Reservations (Blue) in the region. Forts, major towns, rivers and railroad lines are also noted.

Coming in the decade following the conclusion of the Sioux Indian Wars, the map was a part of the concerted effort to encourage settement in the region.
