A very interesting set of separately issued maps that show the Union and Confederate Armies' troop build up over three days, from July 1st, to July 3rd, 1863, in Gettysburg.

Position of Union and Confederate Armies on the Morning of July 1, 1863, (10 x 12.5") Shows an expanded view of the area including parts of Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia. The rest of the maps show the immediate area around Gettysburg, and are listed as follows: Battle of Gettysburg, July 1, 1863. First Day. (14 x 14.8"); Gettysburg, July 2,1863. - Second Day.
