Colorado Territory
"Map of Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado Showing also The Southern portion of Dacotah." Philadelphia: S. Augustus Mitchell, Jr., 1862. 11 1/2 x 14. Lithograph. Full original color. Very good condition. Denver.

This fine map of the Plains states is from the 1862 issue of S. Augustus Mitchell Jr.'s important atlas. The map shows the territories of Kansas and Nebraska just after they were reorganized into their present borders (though they were still territories for a number of years yet). Also shown are the territory of Colorado, which was created just the year before. Part of the impetus for its creation was so that the federal government would retain control of its mineral wealth, gold having been discovered there just a few years before. $250
