Published just one year after the outbreak of the Civil War, this topographical and fortification map of Washington DC provides a unique glimpse into the city at one of the most tumultuous times in American History. The Nation’s capital was the most vulnerable and strategically important city during the conflict as it was the geographic dividing line between the North and South. Because of this, the city experienced a massive boom in population as fortifications and defensive forces became increasingly important.
This significant growth was spurred by the rapid expansion of the federal government, which found itself scrambling to provide war funds and armaments to deter an invasion from Confederate forces. Only one invasion attempt occurred in 1864 and marked the first time since 1812 that a sitting US President had been fired on. The battle ended quickly, and confederate forces retreated south.
The inauguration of President Abraham Lincoln happened one year earlier, and the amount of information historians and genealogists can glean from this artifact is immense. Landowner names and rural schools are depicted as well as the numerous Union Forts that had been constructed.
Produced by prolific American cartographer GH Colton this unique depiction of the iconic city immediately transports the viewer back in time. Colton produced maps on heavy steel engraving plates, instead of cheaper wax engravings, and they were considered the highest quality. His company was the leading publisher of maps from 1830 to 1890, and these esteemed prints are genuine pieces of cartographical history.
