Note: 5 inset maps, Vignette of Locomotive under title. Shows the route of the "Proposed Atlantic and Great Western Canal." Also an inset of the Union, Central & Kansas Pacific Railroad. Population tables, statistics, etc. Highly detailed map showing railroads and counties and cities in the eastern part of the U.S. and Canada. Has "United States" on the cover and is the companion map to the Map of the Western States... with "Territories" (see #2539.000) on its cover. Copyright date is 1871. For some reason, Modelski does not list all these early Watson maps, but only a few maps dated 1874 and later; perhaps Watson did not deposit all his maps with the LOC.
