This map of the southwest shows Texas as still a part of Mexico with Austins Colony noted, however the lack of coloring in this area suggests the map was published shortly after Texas became a Republic. Sonora extends north into present-day Utah and is wedged between New Mexico and Upper California. The rivers Timpanogos and San Buenaventura run straight through the Great Basin into the Pacific. Insets include the Valley of Mexico and Guatemala. The map presents a great picture of the region on the cusp of Texas declaring its independence.
