Map of a scout by a detachment from Fort McKavett to the North Llano River during the twilight years of the post's Army service. The dashed red line indicates the route of Lieutenant Mosher and his command, and the designation, "camp," indicates an overnight stop. A patrol much like this one resulted in the battles that earned Sergeant Emanuel Stance a Congressional Medal of Honor 10 years earlier. The stamped marks indicate the various places the map was housed over the years before it was filed at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, there to be found by Col. M. L. Crimmins.
