One of a series of detailed, large-format maps published approximately yearly by H. H. Lloyd & Co. under the same title, but showing the progress of the conflict. Those regions shaded in yellow identify areas gained from the rebels; in this case, since January 1, 1862 to February 1, 1864. Areas still held by the Confederacy are shown in red, while territory belonging to the Union is shown in green. Important battlefield sites are marked with red lines and strategic places are marked with red dots. At this stage of the war, the territory lost by the rebels included most of Tennessee, northern Virginia, southern Kentucky, southern Missouri, most of the lower Mississippi River valley, southern Florida, and coastal areas of the eastern seaboard and Gulf of Mexico. Includes an additional title in the top margin "The Rebellion As It Was and As It Is."
