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.

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’.
