Chapman's Sectional Map of Wisconsin, with the Most Recent Surveys.

Identifying the Major Sites from the Blackhawk War: The Battle of Wisconsin Heights, The Battle of Bad Axe, and Fort Atkinson.

Early Silas Chapman sectional map of Wisconsin, focusing on the lower half of the state and illustrating the extent of major settlement in the 1850s, south and east of the Fox and Wisconsin Rivers.

The first Chapman Wisconsin map listed in Karrow 6 was the 1853 "Wisconsin A Sectional Map with the Most Recent Surveys", which similarly showed only the southern half of the state. This continued in 1855 with another edition of the same map and with an updated and enlarged version - the present map. In 1856, Chapman published both the lower Wisconsin map seen here, and a full-scale map of the state. This indicates the pace of development in Wisconsin in the post-statehood decade. Railroad development, which was exclusively confined to the southeastern section of the state in the present map, would explode over the length of the state in the following years.

Several reservations are shown including those of the Oneida and Menominee. The Oneida reservation was designated in 1838 for members of the Oneida Tribe of New York.

Chapman's maps are indispensable for the study of the 19th-century settlement of the Upper Midwest; his proximity to the action in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and the Dakotas, rendered him perhaps the most authoritative mapmaker of the region in the 1850s and '60s.
