Fort Leavenworth Army Garrison
Guards Frontier Supply Chains ...
Map of recently ceded Delaware lands in Kansas which the U.P.E.D. was selling off to settlers.
Residences of individuals, apparently tribal officials, are indicated, as well as the Council House, the "Agency,"
and the village of Secondine, just east of Grinter Ferry.
Train stations along the Kansas River to Lecompton are shown, as well as some major roads. In evidence are the villages of Tonganoxie and Sarcoxiville and the the towns of Oskaloosa, Lawrence, and DeSoto.
An inset map shows the route of the Union Pacific
past Topeka and Junction City, down the Smoky Hill Fork.
