Antique Map Auction Sale No. 117 - closed 12/6/2006
These six maps illustrate the Atlanta campaign from the atlas of Van Horne's "History of the Army of the Cumberland." Ruger worked for the Topographical Engineers and had access to the War Department maps and plans that were drawn in the field. Each shows highly detailed troop actions and movements. Each was published by Robert Clarke & Co., and printed by Krebs Lithographing Co., Cincinnati. A nice matched lot of maps of Sherman's campaign, which is credited with turning around Lincoln's reelection chances in 1864.
