Important separately-issued hand-colored lithographed map of the Battle of Shiloh lithographed by Chas. Robyn & Co. of St. Louis, Missouri in 1862.

Geo Thom. Chief of Topl. Engrs. Drawn by Otto H. Matz, Asst. Topl. Engr. Lith. by Chas. Robyn & Co. cor. Chestnut and 3d St, St. Louis Mo."

The map includes troop positions for both armies, the Union and Confederate field headquarters, roads, railroads, drainage, vegetation and topographical features, plus the local residents in the vicinity of the battle.

The map includes a manuscript note under Colonel Thomas's name "Dept of the Mississippi".
