The First Comprehensive Map of Oklahoma, North Texas and New Mexico (Streeter) -- Early Appearance of Dallas and Forth Worth

Extending from Fort Smith, Arkansas to the Rio Grande and the Gila Rivers.  The detail in the map is quite remarkable for the period, especially along Marcy's route to and from Fort Smith.

Marcy's map delineates, for the first time, the region along the Red and Canadian Rivers. It shows two major roads from Fort Smith to Santa Fe, plus several other routes and Indian trails. The map also notes various tribal lands, topography and hydrology as well as the location of daily campsites.

The map is filled with interesting details and notations including the Apache Trail and Comanche Trail.  It includes a very early depiction of Dallas located along the Trinity River.  

In the west, the map shows General Kearny's Trace and Lieutenant Col Cooke's Wagon Route.  The Wagon Road from El Paso to Chihuahua is also shown.

Near the Trinity River, Fitshue Station is shown, along with an area identified as "Extreme border settlement."
