14 Amazing Maps of the Wild West

The American Frontier

The American West has always held a fascination in the national mythology. From western films to novels and intense historical scrutiny, conquering the frontier has greatly inspired the American spirit, while also being a source of national shame. From the mistreatment of the Native Americans, to the slave labor employed through Chinese immigrants in building the railroad, it is a complicated history fraught with controversy. Still, these maps of the American wild west remain fascinating documents of the time period and are occasionally historical artifacts with artistic beauty. Cartography and geography have always been wrought with political implications, but they remain essential documents when scrutinizing our past.
