FEATURED MAP OF THE DAY
Harper's Cereographic Map of the United States (1847)
by Samuel Breese
Shows the layout of the country in the middle of the 19th century, with the states extending just past the Mississippi River (the states admitted to the Union most recently before the map was made were Texas and Iowa). Includes numerous canals, railroad lines, and roads. Also includes inset chart showing the population breakdown by state and county based on the 1840 census, as well as 20 inset maps of major cities. Two inset maps in the upper left show Oregon Territory and the headwaters of the Missouri River. The locations of numerous Native American tribes to the west of the states are also shown.
