This is a fine print reproduction of a map of Wisconsin, 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. The map includes a smaller inset map showing the vicinity of Milwaukee. While much of the population resides in the lower half if the state, the large counties of Wisconsin's Northwoods have yet to be surveyed and contain little cartographic detail.

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.
