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
Map, shewing the Entire Field of Operations under Grant, Sherman & Thomas
Map, shewing the Entire Field of Operations under Grant, Sherman & Thomas. Published in London by Bacon & Co., this image of a Map Shewing the Entire Field of Operations, Under Grant, Sherman & Thomas details the Deep South Confederate States, principally of Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama, as well Virginia and the Union state of Kentucky. These areas witnessed the Union Army push in the last year and a half of the war, under the leadership of General Ulysses S. Grant. General George H. Thomas predominately fought in the western theatre of the conflict, while General William T. Sherman was responsible for the Army’s ultimately devastating march through the Southern states in 1864 and 1865. His marches through Georgia and the Carolinas, which crippled the home–front, remain a vital part of Civil War military history and Southern memory of the conflict. Bacon & Co.
