Lloyd's Map of the Southern States
Lloyd's Map of the Southern States showing all the Railroads, their Stations and Distances, also the Counties, Towns, Villages, Harbors, Rivers & Forts. This map was published by J.T. Lloyd in New York in 1861. It details ‘all the railroads, their stations & distances’, as well as the ‘counties, towns, villages, harbors, rivers and forts’ based on the ‘latest Government and other reliable sources’. The map details states beneath the Mason-Dixon line which theoretically separated the northern and southern states. As well as showing the states that made up the eastern side of the Confederacy, the map also shows the Union states of Kentucky, Maryland and Delaware, which, along with Missouri, made up the Border States. Maintaining these states within the Union was a crucial war aim for Lincoln. J.T. Lloyd

At the top, in the horizon, the map stretches to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and New Orleans, Louisiana. An interesting presentation of the country, this map was produced by Louis Prang in 1861 in Boston. Prang published many maps during the American Civil War. According to the description at the bottom of the map, this item was ‘a superior & truthful guide in the present war operations’. L. Prang & Co.
La Florida. Auctore Hieron Chiaves.
When first issued in 1584 as a copper engraving by Ortelius in his Theatrum Orbis Terrarum 1584-1612, this was one of the few sixteenth century maps based on Spanish sources; in this case drawn from reports of Hernando de Soto's expedition through the region. There are three maps on this sheet. The most important map (La Florida) is the first printed map of the southeastern portion of the United States. This influential map provided the foundation cartography for the region, particularly in the depiction of the river system. The map below (Guastecan Reg) combines with La Florida to extend the coastline of the Gulf of Mexico further south. The third is a map of Peru, where De Soto was the first Spaniard to meet Inca Emperor Atahuallpa. In the north of the map of Peru is Aurea Regio, or Kingdom of Gold, a reference to the fabled El Dorado. Text on verso. Chaves, Geronimo, 1523-1574.;Ortelius, Abraham, 1527-1598. Ortelius, Abraham, 1527-1598.
