Published in the waning years of the Civil War, this depiction of the Confederate capital Richmond, Virginia, shows the city at a pivotal point in its rich history. The city had been the main target of Union Forces throughout the conflict. Richmond was the home to five major railroad hubs, which allowed troops, munitions, and supplies to spread throughout the South. As Union forces continued to advance on Richmond in 1865, Confederate troops began to evacuate the city, and more than a fourth was intentionally burned.
David Van Nostrand’s New York-based publishing house produced this map which notes the locations of Confederate fortifications and would have been an invaluable tool for the strategic planning of the Union Forces leaders. Prior to the outbreak of the Civil War, Richmond was thriving with a robust economy based around manufacturing, milling, and ironworks, which were the largest in the South. By 1850 Richmond was connected to the coast with the Richmond and Peterson Railroad. This expanded access created a population boom as immigrants eager to work flocked to the city and established neighborhoods along cultural lines, many of which exist to this day.
The minimal style and unique aesthetic of this map immediately transport the viewer back in time, creating an indelible link between the past and the present. Richmond is one of the most iconic cities of the American South, and its place in history cannot be understated. This rare map is truly an authentic piece of cartographical history.
