KNSS: Historic maps digitized for the 200th anniversary of the Santa Fe Trail

KNSS: Historic maps digitized for the 200th anniversary of the Santa Fe Trail. “A collection of historic trail maps has been digitized and is available online in time for the 200th anniversary of the Santa Fe Trail…. The historic Santa Fe Trail marked its beginnings when William Becknell’s trading expedition left Boonville, Missouri, on September 1, 1821, for Santa Fe, Mexico. The expedition followed days after Mexico separated from Spain’s 300-year rule. The Santa Fe Trail became the primary trade route between the new nation of Mexico and the United States.”
