Surveys for military defenses. Map of northeastern Virginia and vicinity of Washington. Corrected under the Bureau of Topographical Engineers, 1862.

This map is from the “Atlas to accompany the official records of the Union and Confederate Armies, Washington, 1891-1895.” Very accurate and dense map showing the area around and west of Washington, DC, and Virginia. Drawn by J.J. Young and W. Hesselbach, the map’s information was compiled from Civil War surveys, reconnaissance reports, maps, and manuscripts. This map accompanied the report of Major General George B. McClellan, of the U.S. Army. 

In the top left of the map is an illustration of the Geological Profile of Loudon County. It is split into two parts, Primary Foundation and Upper Secondary Formation. At the top right of the map is a listing of elevations above tidewater.

The map has original color, and is in very good condition. The map is archivally presented in a decorative acid-free mat and custom-built frame.

Framed dimensions: 22 7/8" H x 34" W x 1 1/2" D
