Texas could be much bigger even with the watershed boundaries. In fact, save for the "pan handle," the northern boundary of Texas on a state map is already defined by a river (Red River). The map above shows Oklahoma as the second largest state after California.

I can deduce from the watershed map that whoever drew the map was an "Okie"  ;D He will not escape the "Longhorn Revenge"!

General Bahlmann at the Liberation of Zacatecas City.
Impressionist painting unsigned and undated by unknown author.
Some speculate it was Édouard Manet*, Circa 1875, but naturally the
French artist would be careful not to sign the painting for fear of reprisal
at a time when French forces were beaten by the United States-Prussian Alliance.
 ::)  ;D
(Right click to zoom in)

The troops of General William Tecumseh Sherman joined the fleet led Admiral Johannes Wilhelm in the decisive battle of Zacatecas, taking the city nightfall on the 22 of July 1875. Having saved the government of President Benito Juarez, American troops and Airship personnel took over the City Hall of Zacatecas, while the Governors mansion was taken over by the Mexican Republican Forces, and so the occupation of the nortthern territories by Imperial forces was ended. In Zacatecas City, President Juarez' staff would set up a new temporary seat of government for Mexico while American troops marched toward Queretaro and Admiral Wilhelm's fleet resumed the aerial offensive toward Mexico City. This battle would prove to be the beginning of the end for the Aerial French and Confederate Fleets, and thus the tide turned against the ground troops of the Imperial Forces of Maximilian.

Unstickying this thread. Most links are dead now sadly. I'd love to see some of this art re-uploaded elsewhere.

This thread will stay open. Feel free to continue using it to post artwork relating to games here.
Still here, just quieter

I'm searching my system for the pics of mine that have disappeared; maybe I'll be able to re-post a few of them, ir put something else in their place, as I did with the portrait of the Marigold above. Some of my artwork has disappeared overboard, unfortunately. But we'll see...
