This map isn't part of any series, but we have other maps of Texas that you might want to check out.

I'm ashamed to say that A.) I don't speak Spanish, and B.) I'm no kind of scholar on the Mexican-American War.

Near as I can tell -- and this is just an educated guess -- it's a map of the Battle of Cerro Gordo in 1847.

Any and all help deciphering this beautiful map would be much appreciated.

For more map resources and imagery from this period in Plano's history, check out the Texas Historical Commission's website.
