This is a fine print reproduction of a map of Minnesota and Dakota published by Johnson and Ward out of New York in 1862. The map is color coded by county and shows surveyed lands, lakes, rivers, railroads (both completed and proposed), towns, military forts, trading posts, Native American lands, and several notes of the geography of the region. 

In this map, Dakota has not yet been divided into North and South Dakota, and much of the land is noted as being part of Yankton Country, which refers to one of the northern plains Sioux tribe. At the top of Dakota is a notation that reads as follows...

"The vast region of prairies from the Red River of the North and the Mini Walcan L. (Devil's Lake) to about the Great Bend of the Missouri R. is the Great Hunting and Fighting Ground of Kdakotah, Odjibwe, Assinibouin, Asikara, Minitarree, and other Nations."   

This map is no doubt a great piece of history for anyone with ties to Minnesota, the Dakotas, and/or Native American history, specifically the tribes of the northern plains.
