Produced and published by one of the leading mapmaking companies of the nineteenth century, this detailed depiction of the United States shows the nation in a period of significant growth, transformation, and prosperity. JH Colton founded his cartography company in 1831, and his works are noted for their quality, accuracy, and detail. His prints were made using heavy steel plates instead of less costly wax engravings and featured flourishes such as embellished borders. Colton produced numerous maps, including immigrant guides, railroad lines, atlases, and large wall maps.
This map was published in the same year as the outbreak of her American Civil War and featured all military forts and outposts. The war began at 4:30 am on April 12, 1861, at the Battle of Fort Sumter when confederate General Pierre Beauregard began an artillery onslaught. Following Fort Sumter, President Abraham Lincoln would bring up seventy-five thousand troops to suppress the Confederate Army. Most of the fighting occurred in the American South and left the region ravaged after four years of conflict.
The unique aesthetic is immediately recognizable and transports the viewer back in time, giving the viewer a glimpse into the past and creating an indelible bond between the past and present. This authentic piece of American cartographical history shows the nation in one of its most critical turning points while illustrating the expansion and growth that occurred during the first half of the nineteenth century. Colton’s maps are considered some of the best examples of nineteenth-century cartography.
