This is a fine print reproduction of a map of Ohio and Indiana, published by Johnson and Ward out of New York in 1861. The map is color coded by county and shows railroads, wagon roads, rivers, canals, ports, large towns, and villages of the mid-19th century. A vignette appears in the lower right corner presenting a view of the state capitol building of Ohio in Columbus. Important towns such as Cleveland, Toledo, Columbus, Cincinnati, Fort Wayne, Indianapolis, and Evansville can be found within the map.

The timing of the publication of this map is noteworthy as the American Civil War had just begun and the railroad infrastructure already in place in Ohio and Indiana would serve of great benefit and provide an advantage to the Union Army.

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.
