MAPS Maps of the Civil War
Maps are useful in the study of battles and campaigns. During the war itself, maps played a critical part. Prior to the Civil War the military did not place much effort into mapping the country. Consequently there was a dearth of useful maps for planning strategy, laying out battle plans or even finding the nearest ford when attempting a retreat. Both the Army of the Potomac and the Army of Virginia employed cartographers (both professional and amateur) to map out the landscape as they traveled and battled.
