Actual 1800's School Map

Actual 1800's School Map

On the exhibit floor of the UC, I came across this interesting Artifact.

An 1854 pull-down school map of the United States. The booth dude noted that it was his great-great-grandmother's from when she was school teacher. For being that old, it's in really good shape.

I may ask the owner if I should put him in contact with the Library of Congress Map & Geography Division. Hopefully, to arrange something that will preserve this wonderful piece of history.
