The publication of this map coincided with President Abraham Lincoln leaving his home state to be inaugurated in Washington DC, as well as the outbreak of the American Civil War. Though the state would not see significant battles on its soil, its meat processing and manufacturing industries, especially those coming out of Chicago, would be instrumental in the Union’s ultimate defeat of the confederacy. The state was also a significant source for Union troops. Additionally, the proximity of the state to the Mississippi River provided a starting point for General Ulysses S. Grant to begin his assault and secure the vital trade route for the Union.
The expansion of railroads into Chicago, as well as its bustling manufacturing economies, had attracted thousands of immigrants from Western Europe, where famine and civil unrest were forcing many immigrants to find new homes. Since the 1850s, Chicago had become one of the most prominent cities and played a central role in the development of American economic, political, and cultural life. Its location on Lake Michigan allowed the city to control access to the Great Lakes, giving it significant economic power.
Leading into the 1860s, Chicago had seen rapid expansion, and the state as a whole was experiencing economic prosperity afforded by the 30 railings that created the hub of the Midwest. This sectional map depicts the great state in remarkable detail and transports the viewer back in time with its distinctive aesthetic, and these maps were valued in their time by residents and merchants alike.
