Biography: These prints are from the book Reports of Explorations and Surveys to Ascertain the Most Practical and Economical Route for a Railroad from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean. (USPRR) There were 12 volumes, and this illustration is from Volume VI, which dealt with the survey from the Mississipi River to the Pacific Ocean, and was published by the War Department, Washington D.C. in 1856. These railroad surveys were the first attempt at a comprehensive, systematic, geographical exploration of the western regions, and contain some of the earliest images of the west.
