Woodcut, circa 1863. This unusual two-part Civil War map (ca. 1863) shows important military installations along the Cape Fear River during the time of the Union naval blockade, begun in 1863. A "Blockading Squadron" is represented by four small ships, beyond the mouth of the Cape Fear River. Forts and earthworks are marked, as are the "Rebel Generals Headquarters," "Government Manufactory" and "Negro Church" in Wilmington. The detailed map of the Potomac Valley gives important geographical and topographical information, as well as detailed mapping of roads and rail routes through the area. Numerous important Civil War locations, including Sharpsburg and Harpers Ferry are depicted. The map is in good condition, with some browning and spotting. This Civil War map is a fascinating document of historic events in progress, and a fine depiction of a pivotal region in the War Between the States. Sheet size: 19 1/2 x 14 5/8".
