Rare Civil War Theater Map -- Atlanta Campaign

Rare separately issued map of Georgia and Alabama, produced by Lindenkohl and lithographed by Krebs at the direction of the US War Department in 1865.

During the Civil War, the US Coast Survey Department became the official mapmaking branch of the United States War Department. Under the direction of A.D. Bache, many of the most talented surveyors and mapmakers were employed compiling maps from existing official and commercial sources. Among the most active were the Lindenkohl brothers, whose names appear on a number of these compiled maps.

This would seem to be a more final version of the map, overprinted in red with a title, etc.  The same map in a less finished form was being issued to officers in the field during the Atlanta Campaign.


The map is very rare on the market.  We note only the example offered by High Ridge Books in AMPR and no examples in RBH.
