Published by prominent Baltimore-based Jacob Monk, this unique depiction of Colorado's gold-rich territories was produced at the height of the territories' first Gold Rush, which the discoveries at Pike's Peak in 1858. Eager prospectors flocked from the East, South, Ireland, and Western Europe to work in vast mines throughout the Rocky Mountains, and towns emerged around these mining camps as demand for supplies grew, and merchants established lucrative businesses.
Railroads had increased access to the western portion of the United States, which had been ceded the regions from Texas to California from Mexico following their defeat in the Mexican-American War in 1848. This resulted in a contiguous border from the Atlantic to Pacific Oceans and was the culmination of years of effort by the United States to control the Western territories. Though the territory would not achieve statehood until 1876, there was a growing effort within the Colorado Territory to become part of the United States. The United States, for its part, wanted to retain Union control over the Colorado territory as the country headed towards Civil War. The vast mineral reserves were invaluable to the United States' efforts during the Civil War, and Colorado remained under Union control throughout the conflict.
This stunning depiction instantly transports the viewer back in time and is an authentic piece of American cartographical history. The rich history of Colorado and the iconic Rocky Mountains have created some of the most recognizable images in the American West's history.
