On The Road To Statehood – Celebrating 175 Years – 1836.

Maps help us navigate our way through life. Here is one of those many maps that Hawkeyes have used over the last 300 years to navigate around this beautiful place called Iowa.

Iowa Territory by Samuel E. Morse and Samuel Breese – published within Morse’s Cerographic Maps.

The Wisconsin Territory (1836-1838) was divided into two districts: Wisconsin was one, with the other being called, as Albert Lea wrote about it in his book, “The Iowa District” – a region which also included Minnesota and parts of the Dakotas, covering about 194,000 square miles of land. The population of The Iowa District was 10,564.
