Produced by noted American illustrator Nathan Howe Parker and published by prolific American mapmaker JH Colton, this distinctive depiction of Iowa shows it only a decade after achieving statehood in 1846. Colton’s maps bear ornate borders that distinguish them from other maps produced during the same period, and he also utilized have steel engraving plates, which were later hand-colored, making them the highest quality productions at the time.
Iowa’s fertile soil drew settlers west, and the establishment of many farms and ranches throughout the state became its primary economic driver. The state is also known for its popular tradition of fairs, with the first fair being held in 1854, and has been held every year since, excluding during the Spanish American War, and World War II.
During the American Civil War, Iowa supplied Union troops with large supplies of food, and the state remained loyal to Union causes. Iowan farms produced a diverse range of crops, but corn was the most widely grown, with vast fields being planted for export to the growing cities in the midwest and east.
As railroads expanded and access became easier, Iowa saw growth in manufacturing industries as well, mostly producing farm equipment. Mineral reserves did not provide the stable economic opportunities found in agriculture, though some were making their livelihood in drilling for oil and mining lead and copper. The Hawkeye State, as it came to be known, saw an explosion of population growth following the Civil War swelling to over 1.5 million by 1880.
