About this title

Synopsis:

In Civil War Newspaper Maps, David Bosse shows how nineteenth-century advances in printing and engraving technology, coupled with an unprecedented public demand for information, led to the development of a means of mass communication still in use today--the quickly produced, up-to-the-minute newspaper battlefield map. Bosse's introduction offers a concise overview of the subject, including how correspondents got maps to their papers from the field, press-military relations during the war, and the economic problems of map printing. Following the text is an atlas of forty-five newspaper maps printed by the Northern daily press, each accompanied by a summary of the military operation it illustrates and a commentary on the map itself.

About the Author:

David Bosse is curator of maps at the William L. Clements Library at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
