The east half of the country is shown on this highly colored map, extending to about the 103rd Meridian. It marks “the Military Stations, Forts, & c.,” as well as Pony Express, U.S. Mail routes, railroads, turnpikes, and canals. J. H. Colton prepared it for the Rebellion Record, a short-lived periodical subtitled a “Diary of American Events,” published in New York by G.P. Putnam.
