Austin's Colony Shown

Detailed map of Mexico and the Southwest, featuring Texas as a Republic.

The Austin's Colony appears prominently in Texas, along with Austin's Grant, Washington, Houston, Goliad and a number of other early settlements.

The map also provides a fascinating pre-Fremont System of Rivers in Upper California, culminating in Lake Timpanagos and the mythical southern Salt Lake. No sign of the Sierras. Many Indian tribes located throughout the West. The Russian Establishment north of San Francisco is noted, along with the California Missions.

A marvelous early map of the region. From a late edition of Tanner's Universal Atlas.
