Rare Birdseye View of the Theater of War in the Chesapeake Region
Extremely rare birdseye view of the Chesapeake region, centered on Washington DC and the Potomac.
The view is very reminiscent of John Bachmann's views of the same region and were intended to inform the German market regarding the region of conflict during the American Civil War.
South is oriented at the top. A number of towns, railroads, rivers, and other details are shown.
The view is very rare, with only the Library of Congress and Maryland State Archives copies located.
We have previously sold this view in 2007.
