Traveller's Map of the Middle, Northern Eastern States and Canada showing all the Railroad, Steamboat, Canal and Principal Stage Routes.

In 1849 New England railroads were gaining much attention, as farmers and manufacturers of the region were realizing new hopes and possibilities.

Before the railroads, farmers of New England were largely producing crops for their own use and not exporting much at all. Manufactured goods, such as furniture, tools, textiles and soaps, were mainly produced to supply locals. With the added railroads of the mid-1800's, manufacturers and farmers were now able to quickly ship goods to most other parts of the country.

This map was published in 1849 by John Disturnell. It features a list of canal, railroad and steamboat routes. There is an inset illustration of Niagara River and surrounding country, showing the proposed ship canal, railroads, etc., drawn by Capt. W.G. Williams, U.S. Topographical Corps.
