This military map produced at the beginning of the Civil War illustrates strategic ports and military installations. Illustrated and published by prominent lithographer and mapmaker Peter Duval, this map is a compilation of public data and allowed military leaders to prepare a strategy for the conflict that would reshape American history forever.
The secession of the southern states in 1861 marked a turning point in an already tense time, and the Union military had readied itself to combat the insurgent South. The loose organization of the Confederate States had called on men from across the South to bear arms and prepare for the inevitable invasion by Union forces.
Shortly after Lincoln’s election, secessionist forces attacked Fort Sumter in South Carolina, and the war officially broke out in April of 1861. The US Navy at the beginning of the war was enlarged to six thousand officers and forty-five thousand enlisted men and became a crucial part of the Union’s success. By establishing and maintaining blockades, the Union gained a valuable upper hand on the ports that were essential for the Southern states, critically establishing a Union presence at the mouth of the Mississippi River.
The Civil War allowed for the development of what would become the modern US Navy and the construction of well-armored ironclad warships as the war had broken out at the beginning of the industrial revolution. The distinct aesthetic and wealth of information provided by this map offer the viewer a glimpse into the past, and it is an authentic piece of cartographical history.
