The fifth-largest city in Missouri and part of the Kansas City metropolitan area, Jackson was experiencing a period of significant growth and transformation following the conclusion of the Civil War. Independence was known as the "Queen City of the Trails" due to its location as the departure point for settlers making their way across the American West en route to destinations in the Pacific Northwest and California seeking to establish neighborhoods and communities. Independence was officially established in 1827 though it had been growing since the region was acquired in the Louisiana Purchase in 1803 in a deal brokered by Thomas Jefferson that would transform the American landscape permanently.
This bird's eye perspective was produced by one of the early adopters of the form Albert Ruger and bears his distinctive style and aesthetic. Panoramic maps were used as marketing materials to promote towns and cities across the nation and featured attractive economic opportunities and notable buildings to entice residents and merchants alike. Ruger's works inspired numerous other illustrators, and bird's eye perspectives would become some of the most popular works during the middle of the nineteenth and early twentieth century. Ruger primarily focused on the Midwest, as his firm was based in Chicago.
This panoramic map immediately transports the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present. During the 1860s, Independence had become a prosperous city with numerous outfitters giving settlers the last opportunity to stock up on provisions before starting their arduous journey West.
