Description: The Territory of New Mexico before it became a state showing counties, cities, rivers, mountain ranges, and railroads. "New Mexico, a Territory of the United States, is bounded on the N. by Colorado, on the E. by Texas and unorganized "public lands" adjacent to the Indian Territory, on the S. by Texas and Mexico, and on the W. by Arizona. It forms nearly a square, being about 335 miles in width from east to west and 345 miles in length from north to south on the eastern border, which lengthens to 390 miles on the west. As formed originally by the Organic Act of 1850, the Territory embraced Arizona and southern Colorado. IN 1854 the "Gadsden Purchase" from Mexico added a strip along the southern boundary. In 1863 Arizona was detached and made into a separate Territory, and in 1867 the portion of New Mexico north of the 37the parallel was added to Colorado, leaving the Territory with its present boundaries, and an area of 122,460 square miles." —Kellogg, 1903
