This handsome map is filled with detail and includes insets of Galveston Bay and Sabine Lake. There is a large secondary Bexar region in the West that is yet to be subdivided into counties. The huge unorganized Young Territory fills the panhandle; in fact the area was subdivided into more than 50 new counties that year. Curiously Greer County is shown as part of Indian Territory, which didn't happen until 1896. Gray's Map of Arkansas is on verso.
