This is fascinating. I don't understand the map scale, however; it puts the distance between New York and Chicago at around 70 miles! Perhaps the scale is meant to be 0 - 300, not 0 - 30?

John McKay

I have the map for 1860. By them it was only six days to New Orleans and less than three weeks to San Francisco.

John F. Ptak

Yes, the scale is odd and off. I should've photoshopped the thing out or made reference to it.

John: I've added a map for 1857 that shows what you're referencing. Thanks!
