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
Balloon View of the Southern States
Balloon View of the Southern States, showing in the foreground the whole territory between Baltimore and St. Louis, and extending towards the horizon to Keywest and New Orleans. This map shows the country between Baltimore, Maryland, and St. Louis, Missouri, with the eastern side of America presented on the left hand side of the map. 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.

The Field of Battle.
The Field of Battle and Prominent US Generals. The Field of Battle and Prominent Union Generals is one of the most picturesque maps in the collection, detailing the main theatres of conflict in the Confederacy, with each state broken up by counties, and surrounded by virtually all of the main Union Army generals that would have been well known to viewers in 1864 when this map was published in New York by Ensign & Bridgman. The generals are mostly all arranged close to the areas where they were conducting operations at the time of the map’s production, for example Generals Grant and Sherman are close to Georgia and South Carolina. Union Navy generals are also pictured, such as General David Farragut who can be seen close to the Georgia coastline. Ensign & Bridgman
