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).
