This attractive map features the Independent Republic of Texas. In Texas, the named towns include San Antonio, Franklin, Austin and Natchitoches. This French map portrays the United States extending well into British Columbia, cartographically taking the side of the United States as the French normally did at this time in history. Alaska is Amerique Russe and all of Canada is Nouvelle Bretagne. Mexico is in control of the entire Southwest. The map presents some basic detail of Indian tribes, the river systems and some place names along the eastern and southern coastline. Fancy titling and five distance scales.
