Phelps & Watson's Historical and Military Map of the Border and Southern States.
Phelps & Watson's Historical and Military Map of the Border and Southern States. This map, produced in New York in 1863 shows all the Confederate states, including a sizable amount of Texas, as well as the Border States of the Union. It is noteworthy that by this point in the war, Virginia has split into to, with the western half seceding from the rest of the state. West Virginia was admitted to the Union in 1863 and the map clearly shows the separation. The map also contains a list of the major battles from 1861 and 1862 in the bottom right hand corner.

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
War Chart of the Southern States.
War Chart of the Southern States. Published in 1862 by B.B. Russell in Boston, War Chart of the Southern States details the cities, towns, rivers, railroads and marked roads in the Confederacy (with the exception of Texas). The portrait at the bottom right of the map is of the Battle of Hampton Roads, which took place over two days in March 1862 off the Virginian coastline. The naval battle was famous for the fight between the USS Monitor, seen in the foreground of the image, and the CSS Merrimac (sometimes referred to as the CSS Virginia due to the fact that it was built from composite parts of Confederate ships). As can be seen in the image, these ships were ‘ironclads’, built with iron and steel armoured plates. Originally a British naval design, the Civil War witnessed the first clash of these ships at the Battle of Hampton Roads, resulting in worldwide attention on this aspect of naval warfare in America. Arguably the battle between the Monitor and Merrimac was the most famous naval event of the conflict and there are numerous contemporary cultural references to the engagement in items produced during the war. The battle itself was inconclusive, although the Union suffered more casualties than their Confederate counterparts. B.B. Russell
