This attractive steel engraved map was originally published around 1860 by Johnson & Browning. Stenciled color, applied by hand, denotes the county configurations of Iowa and the Nebraska Territory at a pivotal moment in America’s history – the brink of Civil War.

A robust transportation network of roads and railroads – completed, proposed, and under construction – crisscross the image, connecting the various settlements across the sparsely populated region. A fascinating variety of place names, geographic features, and other locations of interest are labeled; including a Pawnee Missionary Station, the future Transcontinental Railroad hub of Council Bluffs, and the route of the Oregon Trail in southern Nebraska.
