This is a fine print reproduction of a map of Iowa and the eastern portion of Nebraska published by Johnson and Ward out of New York in 1862.

The map is color coded by county and shows newly surveyed land, lakes, rivers, railroads, towns, and military forts. Much of the counties in Nebraska and northwestern Iowa have no towns or settlements, and some have yet to be surveyed, which was a dangerous job at the time. Important towns found within the map include DuBuque, Iowa City, Cedar Falls, Des Moines, Sioux City, and Omaha City to name a few.

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.
