Published by prolific American cartographer JH Colton this detailed map of Ohio is indicative of Colton’s unique aesthetic and quality productions. His steel plate engravings were hand-painted and were considered higher quality than maps produced with wax engravings. His works are even featured in the Smithsonian Museum of Art, and their distinctive borders are unique to Colton maps.
By 1851 Ohio was becoming an industrial powerhouse of the Midwest and was experiencing a tremendous amount of growth and development. The steel industry was thriving, and the discovery of coal in the middle of the century led to further expansion. By 1853 Ohio was the third-largest producer of iron and steel in the country.
Township maps represented census data and enable genealogists and historians to develop the history and evolution of regions. Ohio experienced flocks of immigrants throughout the early 19th century to work in the numerous iron and steel furnaces. Thriving meat processing, tobacco plants, and a robust oil industry bolstered the economy, and Cleveland would eventually produce the world’s first billionaire John D. Rockefeller.
1851 also saw Ohio adopt a new state constitution that established the legislative, executive, and judiciary branches of the state government. The constitution also endowed the right to citizens to vote for the Governor.
This depiction portrays Ohio in a time of great prosperity, and the state would also serve as one of the most important places during the Civil War a decade later, this is truly an authentic piece of cartographical history.
