This original map published in 1848 is titled "Topographical Sketch of the Gold & Quicksilver District of California, July 25th, 1848." It is the first map to make any pretense at cartographical accuracy after the gold discoveries. It was published to accompany President James Polk's address to Congress on Dec 5,1848, which set off the Gold Rush of 1849. E.O.C. Ord prepared the map. He had a distinguished military career and Fort Ord, California was named after him. The map depicts the entire San Francisco Bay and the gold regions to the north and east. Wheat, Gold Rush, 54. Size: 21.5 x 15.25"
