Kearney's route to California, William Doniphan's expedition route, and various native tribal territories. Provides much detail for Mexico itself, including inset of the Yucatan Peninsula showing the Mexican departments of Chiapas, Tabasco, and ""Merida or Yucatan." Shows roads, cities, rivers, forts, lakes, and boundaries.
