Locates every battle, campaign and major event of the war. Features detailed descriptive notes. On the hundredth anniversary of the shots at Fort Sumter, National Geographic Magazine's April 1961 issue featured in-depth articles on the U.S. Civil War. The issue included a supplement map that located and described every battle, campaign and major event of the war. Now this historic map is available once again. Side one of the map covers the main region of the War from New Jersey to Louisiana. The map portrays the country as it was charted in 1863. It is based on a map on which General Grant marked his proposed lines of operation. An inset charts the major offensive of each army. Side two features more detailed maps, including Cockpit of the Civil War covering the area from southern Pennsylvania to southern Virginia, an inset of Gettysburg, an inset titled Grant at Richmond , a map of War in the Southwest from Texas to California, an inset of the Vicksburg Campaign, maps of Nashville to Atlanta and Memphis to Huntsville, and an inset of battles for Atlanta. Every battle is located with a crossed-swords symbol. All key battles and events are described with National Geographic's renowned map notes. Printed two sides, 28 x 22 , folded to 4 x 9 .
