A pleasant and decorative map from "Colton's Atlas of America…". On this map Minnesota has been divided into counties and townships. Dakota extends to the Missouri River. "The newly formed Dakota Territory is a huge unorganized area with its western boundary along the Missouri River. A notation in the northwestern portion of Dakota states the region “is the great Hunting and Fighting Ground of Dakotah, Odjebwe, Assiniboin, Arikara, Minitarree and other Nations." This is from the 1857 edition of the atlas with several additional counties added Minnesota since the 1855 edition Maps
