Title : Sketch of the Battle Ground at Palo Alto, (Texas) (One of three maps).
Map maker : U.S. WAR DEPARTMENT.
Date : Wahsington, 1846.

Description :The other two maps are “Sketch of the Battle Ground at Palo Alto, Texas” and "Sketch of the Main Road from fort Brown to Point Isabel Island”.
These three maps on one page show the areas in Texas of the first battles between Mexican and American forces that led to the formal declaration of war in 1846.

Texas had officially been admitted to the Union in 1846, however, Mexico did not recognise the United States' claims on Texas, and considered it a rebelling province.
General Zachary Taylor came with 2,400 troops to relieve the forces at the makeshift U.S. fort, later named Fort Brown. General Arista from Mexico, intercepted Taylor's force with a 3,400-man army, and the hostilities began in earnest with battles at Palo Alto and Resaca de Palma.

These maps were from the first reports of the battles. Engraved by J. Throop.
Condition : In fine condition. Originally folded, now presented to show the three maps. The map has been flattened out.

ID: 97860
