This is an original antique map of New Hampshire, published by Joseph H. Colton out of New York in 1856. The map is color coded and shows railroads, common roads, rivers, canals, mountains, lakes, large towns and villages of the mid-19th century. Additional inset maps show the towns of Richmond, Manchester, and Spring Hill as well as Norfolk, Portsmouth and Gosport. At the time this map was published, West Virginia had not yet seceded from Virginia. That would officially happen 7 years later in 1863.
Condition: Map is in A condition with bold original color on clean paper with ample margins on all sides. Some light paper toning is apparent along the edge of the page. A 1" tear in the lower margin that does not come near the image has been repaired with archival materials on the verso.
