This is a fine print reproduction of a map of Michigan, published by Joseph H. Colton out of New York in 1856.
The map is color coded by county with townships also identified and shows railroads, common roads, rivers, canals, lakes, ports, large towns and villages of the mid-19th century. While much of the population resides in the lower half if the state, the near evenly divide counties of northern Michigan have yet to be settled and contain little cartographic detail.
