This is the large Millroy & Hayes (not to be confused with the smaller New Wilson Hotel version) and is uncommon. This is the rarer companion piece to John Hafen’s Pioneer Camp of the Saints’
Captivating map of the Mormon Trail from Nauvoo, Illinois, to the Great Salt Lake, with depictions of the physical features of the countryside, the mountains, rivers, waterfalls, trees, etc. Also, wagons and trekkers on the trail, Indian encampments, buffalo, and more.
A truly marvelous depiction of one of the great episodes in American history, produced to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the journey. This detailed image was produced with the aid of Apostle Franklin D. Richards, the church historian, in 1899. Rare. Graff 3585.
