Produced under the direction of prolific General Land Office surveyor AF Dinsmore, this detailed illustration shows Arkansas in a time of economic growth and development. The American Civil War had ravaged the land in Arkansas, and farmers were still recovering from the financial devastation wrested upon them during the conflict. As the so-called cotton belt expanded into Oklahoma and Texas, railroad expansion had increased access and allowed farmers to gain momentum heading to the turn of the century.
Arkansas had achieved Statehood in 1836, and the later decades of the 19th century saw the state experiencing rapid growth and industrialization. This transformation from a mostly agricultural economy drew immigrants to the state and saw the establishment of many communities. In the 1880s, mining industries also found a foothold in the state, expanding economic opportunity and diversity.
These maps were critical in the westward expansion of America and, by this time, were primarily re-written to reflect growing rail line construction following destruction during the Civil War. However, the state had initially voted to remain loyal to the Union, following the outbreak of the war in 1861 they chose secession. The state's proximity to the Mississippi River proved critical to Confederate efforts during the conflict. The Union took control of the Northern region following their decisive victory at the Battle of Pea Ridge, which proved crucial for Union control of the Trans-Mississippi Theater. With an unmistakable aesthetic and stunning detail, this is truly an authentic piece of American cartographical history.
