DESCRIPTION:

This is a detailed map of the Southern United States on the generous scale of 25 miles to the inch. Sherman’s campaigns during the years 1863-5 spanned virtually the entire South. He served under Grant in 1862 and 1863 during the campaigns that led to the fall of the Confederated stronghold of Vicksburg and culminated in the routing of the Confederate armies in Tennessee. After succeeding Grant as commander of the Western Theater, he proceeded to capture Atlanta and then embarked on his famous “March to the Sea.” He accepted the surrender of all Confederate armies in the Carolinas, Georgia and Florida in April 1865.

The map lays down in minute detail the movements of all forces under Sherman’s command during these years, with the routes of Sherman’s cavalry, six different army corps, and the pursuit of Hood, identified by color. This is a slightly reduced issue of Stephenson 72.
