This interesting hand colored map, produced by J. Bien, provides a clear picture of the railroads involved in the theatre of operations during the Civil War. The railroad tracks using a gauge of 5 ft., 4 ft. 8 1/2 in., and 5 ft. 6 in. are color coded. Large enough so one can easily track military operations and troop movements.
Issued folded and now pressed and backed with archival tissue. Lightly toned at some folds, and a couple small intersectional fold splits supported on verso, else a near fine example.
