This is a one of a kind map showing the progression of the General Land Office surveys across the State of Nebraska as each township was surveyed. Each individual township is numbered for the year the sections within that township were surveyed and is identified with a unique color for that year.
This map is the result of many years of meticulous research of the over 2,300 individual GLO township plats to determine the dates. In many instances, the townships were separated into two or more plats in the areas of Indian reservations, rivers, or military forts.
A great resource for both the surveyor and the historian, this map shows when each area of Nebraska was surveyed prior to settlement. Each military fort, Indian reservation, and individual county line is shown. The location of the Missouri River is represented for both the date of the survey as well as the location where it exists today.
Other features include a narrative of how the surveys in Nebraska began, where the last surveys occurred, the various General Land Office locations and dates, the twelve Surveyors General who presided over the surveys and their appointment dates, and the locations of the individual District Land Offices with the dates they were opened and closed.
