Additional Details

Showing the United States as it appeared just prior to the Civil War in a neatly detailed, highly British manner. Earlier by comparison to other copies we've seen, with borders of the Minnesota, Nebraska and Kansas Territories still expansive; there are no Dakota or Colorado Territories yet established and a portion of the still existing Oregon Territory just extends into the western regions of what is shown here.
