Battle Map Showing General Ulysses S. Grant's Campaign - 1864-65

Finely executed map showing the various battles and marches led by Ulysses S. Grant during the latter part of the Civil War.

The map extends from Harper's Ferry in the north to Petersburg in the south and from Lexington east to Heathsville. The routes of the II, V, VI, IX, XVIII, and XIX Corps, the regular cavalry, and Sheridan's cavalry are identified by colored lines. The badges of the Corps are given in the legend. The map also indicates roads, railroads, towns, drainage, and relief by hachures.

The Surrender of the Rebel Army of Northern Virginia Under Robert E. Lee is noted in Red near Appomatox Courthouse.

The map is color coded to identify the routes taken by a number of different Union Army Corps, with dates shown along the various lines.   Rare early edition of the map, with information overprinted in blue.  Rumsey notes:

Extremely detailed map of central Virginia showing the routes of Grant's various armies in various colors. This version adds two half sheets at the top to the original version (Stephenson 513).

The version referenced by Rumsey includes the Badges and Division information printed in Black and is therefore likely a later state of the map.

Rarity

The map is apparently quite rare on the market. We note only 2 examples, Murray Hudson (1989) and High Ridge Books (2008 -- later edition).
