This is a fine print reproduction of a map of North Carolina from the Appalachians to the Outer Banks, 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. A small inset map in the lower left corner shows Beaufort Harbor a fishing village and port of safety dating from the late 1600s. Much of South Carolina and Virginia is also included in the map.
