Description

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.

The map is extremely detailed. The most notable feature are the manuscript notatations in contemporary handwriting, which tracks Sherman's March on Atlanta. The map was almost certainly used by a Union Officer during the Civil War.
