WILLIAMSBURG VA 2 255,INTRODUCTION, Civil War Maps in the National Archives lists the approximately 8 000 Civil War maps charts.
and plans in the Cartographic and Architectural Branch of the National Archives the largest. single body of cartographic records pertaining to the American Civil War. The records described in this guide are maps plans and charts containing information relating. directly to Civil War operations and installations Most of the material described dates from the. war and was produced for use by the military forces or to accompany official reports Many of. the maps that are contemporary with the war do not deal specifically with military operations. but do provide information concerning the areas directly affected by the conflict A number of. postwar maps contain military information usually prepared for historical purposes or in con. nection with official investigations of Civil War operations. Almost all of the Civil War maps in the National Archives are Federal maps prepared by or. for the Union forces or other agencies of the Federal Government A few are commercially. published maps that were acquired for use and annotated by personnel in Federal military or. civilian offices The Confederate maps described in this guide were for the most part captured. by Union officers Maps that are filed with Civil War correspondence reports and similar. documents are not included here, Like all the other records in the National Archives the maps and related materials described. are assigned to record groups These usually consist of the records of a single Federal agency. typically at the bureau level and its predecessors The record groups described in this guide. are listed in the table of contents as well as enumerated alphabetically and numerically on pages. 3 71 More than half the maps described are from Record Group 77 Records of the Office of. the Chief of Engineers which includes the records of the Corps of Topographical Engineers. and the Corps of Engineers the organizations responsible for most of the military mapping. accomplished during the war Some of the other record groups containing Civil War maps are. Records of the Coast and Geodetic Survey Record Group 23 Records of the Office of the. Quartermaster General Record Group 92 Records of the Adjutant General s Office 1780s. 1917 Record Group 94 and Records of U S Army Continental Commands 1821 1920 Record. These maps are useful for many types of research By using these maps historians can. document the actions of military units and organizations throughout the war or in a particular. battle Local historians can use the maps to trace old roads and boundaries and many of the. maps show the topography of an area or how a river flowed in the 1860s Other maps show who. owned the property at the site of a battle information that can be useful to genealogists. All of the maps described are permanently on file and are available for examination at the. Cartographic and Architectural Branch Reproductions may be ordered for a fee Available. reproductions include electrostatic copies photocopies and color slides Prices depend on the. type of reproduction used and the size of the original map To obtain the latest information. about prices and availability of reproductions contact the Cartographic and Architectural Branch. National Archives and Records Administration Washington DC 20408. HOW TO USE THIS PUBLICATION, Civil War Maps is divided into two parts Part I is a general guide to the approximately 8 000. Civil War maps in the Cartographic and Architectural Branch Part II describes selected maps. in more detail The special introductions to parts I and II describe the arrangement of entries. and provide additional information, Index Locations of Civil War battles and campaigns such as Atlanta and Vicksburg appear. in several widely scattered entries because Civil War maps can be found in several different. record groups For this reason researchers should consult the index before beginning a search. for particular information, The index refers to places shown on the maps as well as people responsible for the creation. of the maps The index refers to entry numbers not page numbers. Entry numbers found at the beginning of each entry are indicated by the designation 1 00. for part I and 2 00 for part II For example 1 35 Operations at Blakely is the 35th entry. in part I 2 130 Map of the Country between Vicksburg and Meridian Miss is the 130th. entry in part II, Map file numbers appear in both parts I and II In part I the numbers appear in parentheses.
For example operations of the Union forces under Gen john Pope Q 86 1 through Q 86 3. In part II the map file number is at the end of the entry and always begins with RG which. is the abbreviation for Record Group For example RG 77 Dr 139 12 or RG 77 S 4 2 or. RG 77 US 231, These map file numbers indicate the location of the maps in the National Archives and are. necessary to find the map or make a copy of it In part I only those map file numbers most. useful for retrieving maps in Record Group 77 by the staff of the National Archives are shown. When ordering a map reproduction by mail please use the map file number as shown in the. text if no map file number is shown use the entry number 1 and the staff will consult. additional indexes to locate the map, Maps are described in this part by government hierarchy and thereunder by National Archives. record group Under a record group map descriptions are arranged in numbered entries on the. basis of the area subject or occasionally origin of the maps The spellings of names are those. found on the maps When place names vary from map to map the modern spelling is used.
