This beautiful, copyright exclusive design features a stunning 1876 S.A. Mitchell map of Texas overlaid with the Goodnight-Loving, Chisholm, Great Eastern, Great Western, & Shawnee Cattle Trails.
Other features and details include most of the early Frontier Forts, early Texas railroads and counties and towns from that era.
In Texas and the Southwest, the period after the Civil War from about 1865 to the middle 1890's was turbulent with reconstruction, the final Indian Wars, the development of long distance transportation including the telegraph, stage lines and railroads. The cattle drives rebuilt a staggering Texas economy and opened up a new food source to all of the United States.
Sized ready for framing it is printed on a 36" wide x 24" high 65lb Mohawk parchment stock using HP 100 year inks. An even 3/4" border along the edges makes framing or hanging worry free. In order to make sure it arrives safely we carefully roll the map and insert it in to a protective poly tubing sleeve and then it is inserted in a heavy cardboard tube for safe handling all the way to its destination.
Perfect gift for a history enthusiast this piece looks stunning hanging in an office, living room or anywhere you want to showcase a bit of history
