Railroad Map of Indiana by Col. Thomas Armstrong Morris, civil engineer, published in 1850.

By 1850, Indiana’s overspending, to enhance its own livability since earning statehood, had overburdened state financing and it was being forced into bankruptcy. The state had heavily invested in the building of roads, canals, railroads, and an expensive state-run school system. Voters officially enacted a new state constitution in 1851. The goal of this new constitution was to reduce the cost of government, through officials’ salary reductions, and increasing its efficiency.

Colorful counties are named. Railroad lines are labeled, as well as cities and stations along route. Projected railroads are indicated. Eastern line of coal formation is shown. Whitewater Canalis visible. Lith. of Geo. E. Leefe.
