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?

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

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!
