Texas in 1836

1836 Map of Texas.

The 1836 population of Texas was about 50,000. Most of these people lived along the coastal plain along the rivers leading to the Gulf. Ft Bend, San Felipe, Victoria, Gonzalez, Bastrop, Matagorda, San Antonio and Nacogdoches were big towns. Nobody but Commanches and Buffalo lived North and West of San Antonio and Waco Village. The final Mexican sweep was to be through the Austin Old 300 colonies between the San Antonio and Brazos Rivers. As the Mexican forces move East they are confronted with a larger Anglo population, rivers at flood stage and forested countryside.
