This hanging military wall map of the eastern half of United States was published by H.H. Lloyd & Co., in New York, in 1862. The map shows America during the Civil War, from the lower border of the Union to the eastern edge of Texas, thus showing all eleven Confederate states.
Intricately detailed to give accurate information during the Civil War, all battlefields are marked by red lines and strategic places are highlighted by red dots. The maps also labels towns, railroads, rivers, and is hand colored to differentiate state boundaries.
This map was issued in March of April of 1862. 1862 marked a major turning point in the war, especially the war in the East, as Lee took command of the Confederate army, which he promptly renamed the Army of Northern Virginia. With Lee’s ascent the Army of the Potomac found itself repeatedly battered. While the Army of the Potomac was beleaguered by less than visionary leadership, Union forces in the West experienced far greater success under more aggressive generals.
