Biography/HistoryThis map was created by William C. Woodbridge of New York. The engraver was M. Atwood. The map is copyrighted in1845, but it reflects the political changes and military conquest that took place between 1848 and 1850. The map does fill in portions of the unorganized territories of the west with some information about a few Indian tribes and some military forts. Note that the southern boundary of the United States does not have its current location. Dakota Territory has not yet been organized; what we know today as North Dakota is part of Missouri Territory on this map.
