Description

Johnson’s map of the southwest from 1864. This map shows the relatively new territories of Nevada (1861), Colorado (1861) and Arizona (1863). Of note are is that Nevada’s eastern border extends only to the 115th meridian (it was moved to the 114th in 1864, but this didn’t make it to the map). The map contains interesting information on various trails, explorer and postal routes, as well as U.S. forts. Also indicated are the proposed railroad routes
