Published at the start of the Mexican-American War in 1846, this stunning depiction of the United States of Mexico portrays the Nation in a period of significant transition. Texas had been annexed by the United States of America the year prior, and Mexico was struggling internally with disunity and a disorganized government. Produced by prominent American cartographer Henry Tanner Schenck this map bears his unique aesthetic, which is noted for its detail and ornate flourishes. This map was the basis for the boundaries used in the subsequent border negotiation following the conclusion of the war in 1848.
The war was fought in two theaters, California and Central Mexico, particularly Mexico City. Mexican President Santa Anna directed his generals in the conflict, which was the first the Nation had engaged in with a well organized and equipped opponent. Mexico had gained independence from Spain in 1824, and its territories stretch far into North America; one of the conditions of the Treaty of Hidalgo in 1848 was the sale of the northern regions to the United States of America, which would, in turn, give citizenship and voting rights to any Mexican resident residing in those territories. The treaty also protected residents' property rights in ceded territories.
By the middle of the nineteenth century, Mexico had developed a rich culture with many regional distinctions that exist to this day. This depiction of the Nation immediately transports the viewer back in time with a distinctive aesthetic and is truly a piece of North American cartographical history.
