Summary expansion
The territory acquired by the United States from the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo is outlined in green. The yellow strip identifying the gold region of California is a broad yellow line along the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers from the latitude of Mt. Shasta south to that of Kern Lake. The words 'Gold Country' are also engraved in the same general region; see H.G.Taliaferro, Cartographic sources in the Rosenberg Library. Texas is shown in its early statehood form with its western border at the Rio Grande to its source in Colorado. The Old Spanish Trail, indicated as the Great Caravan Route, extends from Santa Fe (in Texas) to "Pueblo de Los Angelos." The Gulf Coast is shown eastward to Tallahassee, and the West includes lower California named in the still unsettled western region
