Goldthwait's Map of the United States, British Provinces, Mexico, Central America, West India Islands, etc., exhibiting the railroads with their distances, single and double tracks and width of gauge.

This map of North America was published in 1861 by J.H. Goldthwait. It was drawn just as the "War Between the States" was beginning.

Railroads were an important factor during the war. Troop supplyment was of utmost concern for both the Union and Confederacy, using the railroads. Many lines were fought over during this time.

This map shows place names, state boundaries and waterways.

There are inset maps of the Railroads of New England and Eastern New York, and the Great Railroad Routes from the Middle Atlantic Ports to the Mississippi River.

Population charts are displayed at the left and bottom of the map. Principal forts and military stations are listed at the lower right of the map.
