Description

Rare map of the Transmississippi West, published in the Berlin serial publication Zeitschrift für Bauwesen in 1856.

The map accompanied an 8 page article on the railroads in the Western United States, which provides a significant discussion of the various transcontinental railroad maps, as summarized by the recently published world of the United States Pacific Railroad Survey.

The map shows the proposed routes to the west, along with a number of existing lines in the midwest and plains regions.

There are a number of early western forts located.
