Published five years prior to the outbreak of the Civil War, this political map was produced to display the ongoing debate over free and slave states in the US and the territories that were under consideration for statehood’s stance on the issue. This rare map was one of the promotional tools employed in the 1850s Presidential campaign launched by John Fremont. Fremont was the first candidate put forward by the newly formed Republican Party, which had emerged after the dissolution of the Whigs.
Published in support of Fremont’s campaign, Reynolds differentiated free and slave states by color depicting free states in red, slave states in black, and territories in green. Reynolds, based in New York, rushed this map into production immediately after Fremont’s nomination in support of the anti-slavery candidate. The map attempted to sway voters with the notion that slavery could spread into the North if a non-anti-slavery candidate were elected.
The nation was divided on the issue, and the inclusion of the territories would prove pivotal to the leverage lawmakers had when determining free states versus slave states. Though this map did not accurately depict what the actual Union and Confederate boundaries would become as Kansas, Missouri, and West Virginia would remain under Union control. This map shows the nation marching toward conflict and illustrates the deep divisions created between the North and South. It’s distinctive aesthetic and unique purpose as a political campaign piece make this an authentic part of American cartographical history.
