Uncommon map covering east-central Texas from the Sabine River to San Antonio. The "Old San Antonio and Nacogdoches Road" is prominently shown. Several very early settlements shown along the roads. This map was among the maps submitted to Congress to illuminate the U.S. Army's first explorations in Texas. A bit of light foxing along folds and chipped along top margin, overall very good.
