This is a fine print reproduction of a map of Washington D.C. published by Johnson and Browning out of New York in 1861.

The map is color coded by ward and shows the street layout with street names, the Potomac River, canals, public squares, government grounds and buildings including the Mall, Presidential House, U.S. Capitol building, penitentiary, U.S. Naval Yard, and Marine Hospital to name a few. The map is surrounded by three vignettes that offer views of the U.S. Capitol Building, Smithsonian Institute, and the Washington Monument.

The timing of this map is noteworthy as President Abraham Lincoln had just taken office as the 16th President of the United States and the American Civil War had begun with the attack on Fort Sumter (April 12-13, 1861).

What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
