Catalogue Note

A vibrant and detailed map of the Southern States during the Civil War, which nowhere acknowledges the existence of the Confederacy. Colton based his map on the southern portion of J. Calvin Smith's Map of the United States of America including Canada and a large portion of Texas, first published in 1843. The Colton map still bears the attestation of the Principal Clerk of Surveys, General Land Office, that "Mr. J. Calvin Smith of New York has copied from the original plats in this Office all the Surveys deposited here to the present time, for the purpose of constructing his Map of the United States."
