An interesting hand colored map produced by J. Bien. It 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 to easily track military operations and troop movements.
