Foreword by Stephen W. Sears. Includes bibliography and index. Beautifully illustrated with maps in color.

From the Publisher:

During the Civil War, a good map could spell the difference between victory and defeat. This book collects, for the first time, the war's most notable, interesting, and beautiful maps-and tells the story of how they were made. Ranging from exquisitely detailed renderings reproduced in full color to rough pencil sketches drawn from horseback, these maps-many never before reproduced-are both striking works of art and invaluable historical artifacts. The lively, anecdotal text explains the techniques and travails of mapmaking during the war and reveals the little-known cartographic exploits of George Armstrong Custer, writer Ambrose Bierce, and Brooklyn Bridge engineer Washington Roebling, among many others. Here is an extraordinary gift for Civil War enthusiasts everywhere. 180 illustrations, 150 in full color, 911/2 x 1133/4 Subsidiary Rights: Selected by the History Book Club Earl B. Mcelfresh, a cartographer and map historian, is president of the McElfresh Map Company, which publishes much-sought-after hand-drawn maps of Civil War battlefields. He lives in Olean, New York. Stephen W. Sears, a renowned Civil War historian, is the author of The Landscape Turned Red and To the Gates of Richmond.
