This is an original antique map of Wisconsin, published by Joseph H. Colton out of New York in 1856. The map is color coded by county with townships also identified and shows railroads, common roads, rivers, canals, lakes, ports, large towns and villages of the mid-19th century. The map includes a smaller inset map showing the vicinity of Milwaukee. While much of the population resides in the lower half if the state, the large counties of Wisconsin's Northwoods have yet to be surveyed and contain little cartographic detail.
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 well away from the image.
