Index map made to accompany "Military maps illustrating the operations of the Armies of the Potomac and James".
The map is filled with a huge amount of Civil War detail and information. Extends to include Lynchburg in the southwest, Petersburg in the southeast and north through Washington and on to Gettysburg.
Stephenson states these are a "detailed series of maps indicating fortifications, roads, railroads, houses, names of residents, fences, drainage, vegetation, and relief by hachures." First edition series on heavy paper with printed color background and light browns printed on the rivers, unbound with title page. The maps are the same as the second edition (see our copy dated 1872, #2493) but the South Mountain map is not present (it was added in 1872 to the second edition). The addition of printed color makes the maps much more readable than the second edition maps. See Stephenson 517-520 for the different editions.
