This rare Civil War map was published in Germany to illustrate the seat of war in the Mid-Atlantic states from Baltimore to New York City. While no battles are depicted, the map does a nice job detailing the transportation network and natural features of the region including railroads, roads, court houses, rivers and topography. Originally issued as a brochure, this example has been dissected and backed with linen. European maps of the Civil War are quite uncommon.
