Drawn by Captain William Kossak in St. Louis MO and printed by the American Photo Lithographic Company of New York using "Osborne's process."

It covers the region bounded by Mobile in the south, Washington and St. Louis in the north, Chesapeake Bay to the east and to the west by Little Rock, Arkansas.

[1] Osborne's process was a photo-lithographic process based on a large copy camera and photo-sensitized transfer paper made from photo negatives. By 1866 the American Photolithographic Company operated a massive copy camera with a 14 foot platform at its Brooklyn plant. The huge apparatus was capable of reproducing drawings up to forty-eight by sixty inches. (Reps, John William.
