This is a fine print reproduction of a map of Wisconsin and Michigan, published by Johnson out of New York in 1866. The map is color coded by county and shows railroads, wagon roads, rivers, canals, ports, large towns, and villages of the mid-19th century. Important towns that can be found within the map include Detroit, Lansing, Saginaw, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Madison, Wausau, and LaCrosse to name a few. 

At the time of publication, much of the population was confined to the lower half of each state and this is quite obvious when looking at the maps. Counties in the northern portions are either very large and/or without any towns or settlements. Though much of the Native American population had since been relocated to reservations in present-day Oklahoma, notations of an Indian Reserve in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and in northern Wisconsin, one can find the Chippewa Reserve and an unnamed "Indian Village" in the underdeveloped counties.

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.
