39 Civil War Maps of the Battle of Gettysburg, PA on CD

The Battle of Gettysburg (July 1–3, 1863), fought in and around the town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, as part of the Gettysburg Campaign, was the battle with the largest number of casualties in the American Civil War and is frequently cited as the war's turning point. Union Maj. Gen. George Gordon Meade's Army of the Potomac defeated attacks by Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, ending Lee's invasion of the North.




The maps are saved in a file format which uses a compression ratio of up to 22:1. These extremely high-resolution maps contain an amazing level of detail and most image viewers are not able to decode this special format, so a special program is required to view and manipulate the images and is included on the CD.

This software has an incredibly powerful zoom feature (14 levels) that will allow you to see the entire map, and you can also zoom down to where you can read the original handwriting. You'll be able to save the maps as a digital image in several different file formats so that you can use them in your personal projects, and you can also print at the magnification level you choose.



The maps included on this CD are:

Copy of official plan of Gettysburg. Pennsylvania, fought 1st, 2nd, 3rd July 1863.

Map attempts to show the locations of various units during each day of the battle. All major landmarks are indicated.

Map of Gettysburg and vicinity, drawn by Gaylord Weeks, Denison, Iowa, 1863.

Also shows locations of artillery, significant features of the battlefield, some dwellings with names of residents, vegetation, drainage, roads, and railways.

Includes inset: Site of Gen. Gregg's cavalry operations, three miles east of Gettysburg.

Gettysburg in peace drawn by R. K Sneden.

Printed map on which Sneden has indicated the places where his unit (the 40th New York) saw action on the battlefield.

"Map showing the location of each monument dedicated or to be dedicated this year on the field where the Rebellion was checked."

Map showing movements of army from 30th June to 1st July 1863, and first encounter of 1st Corps with the enemy.

Indicates the general terrain and disposition of troops around Gettysburg, Pa., as well the fighting northwest of town between the Union's I Corps, under Maj. Gen. John F. Reynolds and Confederate forces under Hill. Shows the place where Gen. Reynolds was fatally shot on July 1 and the locations of Union forces at 11 a.m., 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. as they fell back toward the town.

Battle of Gettysburg, Penna.. Showing positions held 1st and 3rd July 1863.

This map of the battlefield at Gettysburg juxtaposes locations of various units on the first and third days of the three-day battle. Most of the fighting on July 1st seems to have taken place to the northwest of the town of Gettysburg, while that on July 3rd is concentrated to the southeast.

Map of the Battle of Gettysburg showing positions held July 1st & 3rd 1863, drawn by R. K. Sneden

In this image Sneden compares troop locations during the first day of the battle with those on the third day. One obvious observation is that the Confederate forces have succeeded in pushing the Union line back to the more easily held hills south of the town.

Map of the Battle of Gettysburg, Penna. showing positions held July 2nd 1863.

This map shows the disposition of troops on this second day of the battle. The designation "5 p.m." appears slightly to the left of the title. As the fighting began late in the day and continued on well into the evening, this could be interpreted as a depiction of forces going into the second day of the battle.

The Battle of Gettysburg Penna.. Showing positions held July 2nd, 1863.

Gives locations of specific units with some attempt to indicate movement (i.e. direction of charges and assaults) during the course of the day. Also indicates the usual landmarks (Culp's Hill, Cemetery Ridge, Round Top, etc.) plus the locations of hospitals and headquarters.

Gettysburg July 2nd. The Union and Rebel forces in the cemetery.

While purporting to depict a meeting of Union and Confederate forces at Cemetery Hill, this map instead shows in detail the disposition of Union forces on Cemetery and Culp's hills. Of greater interest is the indication of the location of Sickles's 3rd Corps along the Emmitsburg Road on the morning of July 2nd, and their new position at the base of Little Round Top by nightfall. Sickles, having overextended his line, left himself open to a flank attack by Hood's division.

Plan showing the Rebel concentrated assault on the 3rd Corps, July 2nd.

Map depicts the situation just prior to Union Gen. Daniel Edgar Sickles' having ordered his 3rd Corps into an advanced position on a ridge overlooking the Emmitsburg Road, unknowingly exposing his left flank. Confederate forces under Longstreet and Hill attacked him, overwhelming the Union position and forcing the troops back, thereby succeeding in forming a wedge between the 2nd and 3rd Corps. Sickles was injured in the fighting and lost a leg as a result.

Gettysburg. Third day. Position of troops.

Detail from an identified printed map annotated to show which units held essentially the same position through July 2 and which moved, noting the starting positions (in the morning) and ending positions (in the evening) of the latter. The usual landmarks, such as Culp's Hill, Cemetery Ridge, and Little Round Top, are also indicated.

The Cavalry battle, Gettysburg, Pa. : July 3rd 1863, 2:30 p.m.

The cavalry action took place approximately two miles to the east of the town of Gettysburg. This map shows the Confederate cavalry, under Stuart, attempting to cut the Union lines of communication along the Baltimore Turnpike. They were thwarted in their effort by Union cavalry commanded by David McMurtrie Gregg. The map depicts the rough locations of individual skirmishes.

Cavalry battle, Gettysburg, Pa. : July 3rd 3:30 p.m.

Shows in detail the cavalry battle east of the town of Gettysburg with the action depicted as happening at 3:30 p.m. Also includes pairings of Union and Confederate brigades as engaged.

Covers parts of Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia, focusing on the Gettysburg area south through Sharpsburg and Frederick City, Md., and ending around Harpers Ferry, Va. At the end of June 1863, Union and Confederate troops were moving towards Gettysburg, Pa. The conflict at Gettysburg was fought July 1-3 with Confederate troops retreating south after that time. Sneden includes dates at various locations to place troops in time.
