This is a huge BLACK & WHITE COPY of an original 1855 COLTON ATLAS Map of
PUBLISHED BY J.H. COLTON & Co. No.172 William St NEW YORK
A GREAT FIND FOR THE HISTORIAN !!!
This map is HUGE ---- 26 inches by 24 inches!!!
This map was made 3 years before MINNESOTA became a state in 1858!
In 1855 Minnesota was a TERRITORY...Look at the odd shape..It took in the area
of a large portion of modern day North & South Dakota!
At this time, a lot of the territory was inhabited by large American Indian
City and County names in
the TITLE BLOCK may not necessarily appear on this map.
I will mail out in a large mailing tube.
Again, this is a COPY of the huge map, NOT THE ORIGINAL. I have the original
and it is not for sale.
Would make a great gift !!
Thanks for looking!
