"County Map of Texas" 1866 - Mitchell


“COUNTY MAP OF TEXAS” Philadelphia: S. Augustus Mitchell, Jr.,  1866.  Although dated 1860 in the margin, this was published in the 1866 edition of Mitchell’s New General Atlas. Engraved map in excellent condition with attractive original hand-coloring. (Ref: Day, Maps of Texas, #2054). (Image: 10 ¾ x 13 3/8’’) 

This detailed historical map depicts Texas with its counties named and in contrasting colors.  Topographical features are shown (and described) with major towns, cities, water routes, mountain passes identified. 

Railroads (existing and proposed) and wagon routes are also located.  Sites of important Battles are noted throughout (Ft. Alamo, Palo Alto, Resaca de la Palma…).

The inset shows “Galveston Bay, and Vicinity.”  A  fascinating view of the state as it existed just one year after the American Civil War.
