Description
The Civil War Map Project includes 198 manuscript and printed maps from the Library of Virginia's map collection. This digitization project began in conjunction with the Library of Congress and Virginia Historical Society for the digital collection of United States Civil War maps on LC's American Memory site. The map images are still available through LC's American Memory site and will continue to be. Although this is a duplication of images, LVA decided to highlight more specifically its own collection of Civil War maps in order to differentiate what maps are unique to LVA.
