Here's an 1841 map of Texas that shows the former boundaries stretching way into what is now Colorado and New Mexico, “the way God and Sam Houston intended,” to quote a friend of mine. In west Texas is noted “droves of wild cattle and horses” and also shows where you will find Comanche, Caddo, Creek, Shawnee, Apache, Cherokee, “Lepan,” and Kickapoos Indians. This map is held by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.
