Civil War Maps Available at LoC
The Library of Congress is posting 2,240 maps and charts and 76 atlases and sketchbooks for the years 1861-1865. The Virginia Historical Society and the Library of Virginia will also add similar items. The entire collection should be available by spring 2005. The AP article provides many examples of the types of maps already available. If you work with genealogists, you might want to look at the collection.
