This is an original antique map of Wisconsin and Michigan, published by Johnson out of New York in 1866. The map is color coded by county and shows railroads, wagon roads, rivers, canals, ports, large towns, and villages of the mid-19th century. Important towns that can be found within the map include Detroit, Lansing, Saginaw, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Madison, Wausau, and LaCrosse to name a few. 

At the time of publication, much of the population was confined to the lower half of each state and this is quite obvious when looking at the maps. Counties in the northern portions are either very large and/or without any towns or settlements. Though much of the Native American population had since been relocated to reservations in present-day Oklahoma, notations of an Indian Reserve in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and in northern Wisconsin, one can find the Chippewa Reserve and an unnamed "Indian Village" in the underdeveloped counties. 

Condition: This map is in A condition with bold original color on fine paper with ample margins on all sides.
