Named after Republican Senator John Richardson Harris, this map shows Harris County in a period of economic rebuilding following the conclusion of the Civil War. The third most populous county in the United States was founded in 1846 at the White Oak and Buffalo Bayous junction. The first European settlers arrived in Galveston Bay in 1822 though there is evidence of human settlement in the region as far back as four thousand BC. These immigrants sailed in from Louisiana and established numerous settlements on the banks of bayous throughout what would become Houston. Senator Harris had been granted more than four thousand acres of land on the Buffalo Bayou and established a trading post and grist mill.
Produced by Commissioner of the General Land Office WC Walsh, whose influence on the establishment of numerous institutions, including the University of Texas at Austin, would shape the culture and history of Texas for decades. Walsh was born in Dayton, Ohio, but his family relocated to Austin in 1840. He served as part of Hood's Texas Brigade was severely wounded at the Battle of Gaines Hill, where he was a captain.
This map's unique aesthetic, details, and historical significance make it an authentic piece of American and Texan cartographical history. Its immediately recognizable style immediately transports the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present. The latter portion of the nineteenth century were formative years for Texas and the Nation as it recovered from the Civil War.
