|Until the end of the Red River Wars in 1875, the Comanches ruled Texas. In this portion of a much larger map from 1841, both the mapmaker,
John Arrowsmith, and the geographer William Bollaert mention a number of features associated with the Comanches - including the Spanish
mission at San Saba, which the Comanches raided with the Taovayans in 1757. Link to the map is here. (LOC)
