Published in 1912, this unique depiction of the battles of the Civil War shows the significant amount of clashes that occurred on Virginian soil. By 1861 the disagreement between Northern and Southern States erupted into conflict at Fort Sumter South Carolina, and Virginia's geographical location placed it at the northernmost portion of the Confederacy. Its location would make it critical to Union assaults and ultimate victory. Virginia was home to the first and last significant battles of the Civil War, with the first being the Battle of Bull Run and the last, the Battle of Appomattox Courthouse.
Richmond was the Confederate Capital and its significance as a manufacturing powerhouse that the Confederacy heavily relied upon informed the decision to move the capital to the city from Montgomery, Alabama, in 1861. The town needed strong defense as it was only 100 miles south of the newly established border with the Union and capital Washington D.C.
Richmond was also the only large scale industrial city in the Confederacy, and it's importance required armaments to ensure Union forces would not destroy it. Confederate President Jefferson Davis also resided just blocks north of the State Capital. The city was the target of many Union attacks throughout the war, though never moved or successfully sieged throughout the conflict.
Petersburg was another vital city for the Confederacy as a hub with five railroads allowing access throughout the deep south. Published at a time of great transition, this distinctive map is an authentic piece of cartographical history.
