Catalogue Note

This fine but unsigned manuscript map shows land holders, waterways, and railroads; the only town named is Huntsville. The Houston and Great Northern Railroad is shown running through the county, although it ceased operations in 1873. The county was created and organized in 1846 and named for Robert J. Walker. In 1863 the eponym was switched to Samuel H. Walker because Robert J. Walker was a Unionist. Because of Reconstruction violence, the county was put under martial law in 1871. The Sam Houston National Forest covers approximately a third of the county.
