Published only two years following the conclusion of the American Civil War, this government-produced depiction shows the Territory in a time of great transition and development. The region had become a United States territory in 1850, though it would not achieve statehood until 1912. The Confederate Arizona Territory had split off from the rest of the Territory in 1861 and would become modern-day Arizona.
During the Civil War, the Confederacy claimed the southern portion of the state and attempted to control access to Union held California. These attempts proved unsuccessful, and the campaign was ended in the Union victory at the Battle of Glorieta Pass. The battle raged from March 26-28 in the north of the Territory and has been dubbed the “Gettysburg of the West.” Confederate forces were forced to retreat into Texas, and the defeat allowed California to continue shipping valuable resources East to support the Union efforts. Ultimately some seven thousand troops from the Arizona territory would join the Union.
Control of the southern borders of the Territory proved crucial in the Union victory. The Territory was sparsely populated and mostly agrarian as vast mineral resources had yet to be discovered. This sparse population led to a reluctant Congress not making efforts to include the Territory as a State. The distinctive aesthetic of this map immediately transports the viewer back in time. The United States Topographical Bureau maps were critical in settlement of the American West, and this is an authentic piece of cartographical history.
