    AN IMPORTANT MILITARY MAP OF THE YELLOWSTONE AND MISSOURI RIVERS 1876

    33" x 42 1/2"

    This detailed military map was an irreplaceable guide for the frontier soldiers during the Indian Wars. While this US War Department map is dated 1876, it is drawn from the explorations of topographical engineers Captain W. F. Raynolds and 1st Lieutenant H. E. Maynadier in 1859, some of the first US Army engineers to make quality maps of the upper Missouri. Importantly, the forts of US Army are noted by red flags handdrawn onto the map, signifying safe haven for troops on the move.

    Condition: With some fold marks and evidence of use, this map is a historical treasure from an era of rapid western expansion.
