Highly detailed map of Yosemite National Park, prepared by N.F. McClure, during the period when the Park was controlled by the U.S. Army.
Includes key identifying the Lines of Supply, Wagon Roads, Pack Mule Routes, Patrol Rutes, Scout Routes and other fascinating details.
McClure's map was made shortly after the establishment of Yosemite as a protected park in 1890. During this period, the Army's Fifth Cavalry Regiment controlled the park, and the map was made for their use. The map shows wagon roads, army patrol posts, direction and extent of patrols, routes used by pack trains supplying the posts, and cattle- and sheep-grazing areas.
McClure's map includes a number of early details, many of which reflect the Park in its earliest days.
