Note: in the 1860s and 1870s, the War Department issued many lithographed maps made fom hand drawn maps its engineers had drawn during the war. They were loose sheets of various sizes, not part of atlases or books, although some of them were similar to the maps issued in official reports. Many of them served as the basis for the maps in the official Civil War Atlas published in the 1890s. CONDITION: See item description.
