This German-produced map is a rarity of cartographical history as these depictions were generally domestically produced at the time. It was illustrated to promote Texas as a destination for German residents fleeing religious persecution and civil unrest during the middle of the nineteenth century. Another unique quality of this piece is that European maps from this era did not typically publish single states within the United States, instead focusing on depictions of the nation as a whole. The United States annexed Texas in 1845, and the formal transfer of power took place on February 19, 1846.
The annexation caused the outbreak of the Mexican-American war, which lasted two years until concluding with the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848. This period saw significant growth and immigration throughout the state, with German residents establishing numerous communities throughout the central Texas Hill Country. Many of these buildings exist to this day, and communities established along cultural lines still thrive. Cities like New Braunfels and Fredericksburg still feature a heavy German influence in architecture and city halls which were primarily established in the mid-nineteenth century.
As the influx of German immigrants to the region continued, many mills, beer gardens, and other establishments sprung up on the banks of the Guadalupe, Comal, and Blanco rivers, some of which are still in operation to this day. This work's unique style and distinctive aesthetic immediately transport the viewer back in time, and this is an authentic piece of Texan cartographical history.
