Description

Scarce map of the United States, published in Berlin by Heinrich Kiepert.

Perhaps the most noteworthy features is the alternative name given for Great Salt Lake City, "New Jerusalem oder Mormonen" (New Jerusalem of the Mormons).

The map shows remarkable topographical detail in the west. Only Oregon, Washington, Utah, New Mexico and California, west of the Rockies. Nebraska runs north to Canada. Kansas takes up much of Colorado. Minnesota Territory extends west to the Missouri. Fabulous detail in Western Canada.

Includes up to date roads, railroads, mountains, rivers, towns, forts, Indian Villages and information, etc.

An excellent post Gadsden Treaty mapping of the US Western Territories.
