Topograpshic Map of Switzerland, 1870.

Half of the 19th century was a very turbulent period throughout Europe with Switzerland no exception. A short civil war resulted in the emergence of Switzerland as a federal state in 1847. In 1848, a federal constitution was adopted and amendments in 1874 established federal responsibility for defence, trade and legal matters. This version of the Swiss federal constitution remained unchanged until 1999.
