Campaign Map of the Texas Revolution - 1836
Two Armies Contend for TexasIt's hard to understand something if you can't see the big picture. Something myopic commentators prove everyday.
We wanted to show the troop movements of 1836, illustrate the pincer movement Santa Anna hoped would envelop Sam Houston's army, why control of San Antonio and Goliad were essential to that plan, and how the two generals finally met at San Jacinto.
As the base for this project we chose H. S. Tanner's 1837 edition of Stephen F. Austin's map of Texas, which was the first map to show the San Jacinto Battleground.
We hope you find it handsome enough to hang on your wall, and that it will help all those you show it to understand what happened. If it can be an aid in instructing your kids or grandkids, then it's served a high purpose.

The paper is acid free, fine-art paper with an elegant ever so lightly textured finish. This surface allows the inks to 'bite', reproducing the shading and tonality of the original map vividly, beautifully, and exactly.
The inks are guaranteed color-fast for 80 years, which means you won't need to lay out the extra money for UV glass. You can hang your map in direct sun and it will be just as bright when they are passed on to the next generation it is the day it ships.
