Texas Battle Map Framed
History buffs will enjoy celebrating Texas with this large framed Texas Battle map, a one-of-a-kind framed illustration from our framed Texas Maps collection. This oversize battle map provides fresh appreciation of the fact that many Texans fought and died for the liberties we enjoy today.
It took the artist over seven years to research and hand-draw this unusual Texas history art map using pen and ink on acrylics. Artist Christopher A Smith used a technique known as “stippling” to create the map’s unique look. Throughout this original map are renderings and little known details (flags, forts, portraits, weaponry, ships) that will delight anyone interested in Texas history (see map closeups below). It features the Republic of Texas and over one hundred years of Texas battles between 1775 and 1880 including
- Spanish Mexican War (1775 – 1832)
- Texas Revolution (1833 – 1836)
- Republic of Texas (1836 – 1845)
- Mexican War and Statehood (1846 – 1860)
- Civil War Years (1861 – 1865)
- American Indians’ Last Stand (1868 – 1880)
This map of early Texas is printed on archival paper litho or canvas giclee, dry mounted, protected with a matte lamination, and comes with a specially selected walnut colored custom wood frame. The standard size in frame measures 29 x 40 inches. Larger sizes are available upon request.
