A New Map of Maryland and Delaware, Mitchell & Cowperthwait, 1850 - A rare and nicely engraved and original hand colored early map with a large inset of Baltimore, with significant importance to slave owners. The map has a nice decorative border along with another inset at the top with steamboat routes, canals, roads and distances. When the United States enacted the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, it meant that slaveholders were legally permitted to capture escaped slaves and citizens throughout the nation were required to help. The Act discouraged the aid of "fugitive" escapees by threatening a penalty of jail time and thousands of dollars in fines. From 1850 to 1860, Harriet Tubman, after escaping slavery in Maryland one year earlier, made at least a dozen trips on the Underground Railroad through the state to lead slaves to freedom. With the infrastructure development of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal finally reaching Cumberland, Maryland in 1850, slaves were allowed further means to escape.
Condition: Very good size, some browning on the edges no folds.
