This map features an early rending of the final borders of the new State of Texas. This is from the series that was the first to name Dallas. Indian tribes, forts, wagon roads, mines and more are noted. The Alamo is located as Ft. Alamo. County development has extended to about 99° N. latitude at Gonzales and Gollard counties. The map is dated 1846, but it was likely published closer to 1848.
