957. [Villa de Galvez] [Louisiana]. 1778. Colored pen-and-ink ms., 38 x 25 cm. Scale ca. 1:1,000. 73-691644.

This Spanish plan, which conformed to the Spanish model for new towns throughout the Americas, was for a projected town located on the Amite River, Louisiana. The town of Galvez, which served as a frontier community on the British-Spanish border in Louisiana at the time of the U.S. Revolutionary War, survived into the twentieth century. The initial inhabitants of the settlement included people from the Canary Islands and Acadia (French Canada) who arrived in Spanish Louisiana during the governorship of Bernardo de Gálvez, in whose honor the community was named. A note below the map of the town reads: "Carolo Regnante, Urbem aedificat amor, Galvez ad honorem, nomen dedit que suum." Map is oriented with southeast at top.

959. [Map of New Orleans and Vicinity]. Pintado, V[icente Sebastián and Carlos Trudeau]. Havana. 1819 [1804]. Pen-and-ink ms., 77 x 56 cm. Scale ca. 1:7,450.

This map of New Orleans and its suburbs shows land ownership in the area outside the original Spanish and French colonial city and city streets of the Vieux Carré and of the suburb of Saint Mary. The map's primary purpose is to locate all of the landowners between the city limits and Bayou Saint John with explanatory notes indicating when certain concessions were made. This map is an 1873 copy of the original 1804 map copied by Pintado (in Havana in 1819) and verified by Pilié, the New Orleans Surveyor in 1838. Map reflects information compiled by Pintado in 1795-96 and set down by Trudeau in official records in 1804. The map demonstrates the frequent need to rely upon previous land distribution practices under various authorities, e.g., French, Spanish, and American, in Louisiana.
