Fredericksburg & Sioux Expedition C.1890s Huge Detailed Antique Civil War Map For Sale

Fredericksburg

Map Exhibiting the Route of the Sioux Expedition under the Command ofBrig. Gen. H.H. Sibley

Sketch of the Battke at Dead Buffalo Lake

Issued c.1891-95, Washington, D.C., by the US Government Printing Office.

Printed by Julius Bien & Co., Lithographers, N.Y.

Published under the direction of Daniel S. Lamont, Secretary of War.

Originally issued in the "Atlas to Accompany the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies", which was issued in parts to subscribers over a period of years, but is sometimes found bound up later into atlas volumes.

This oversize and attractive lithographed 19th century sheet depicts in great detail the specific events and locations of the Civil War battles or regions depicted. Astoundingly detailed, with an emphasis upon precision and accuracy, attempting to capture visually and cartographically the regions and battles depicted.

Unlike topographical maps or state maps of the era issued by most cartographers, the underlying premise of these Civil War maps was to depict the cartography as it specifically related to events of the Civil War. Thus, individual battles, small forts, troop movements, local rail lines, panoramic views, etc. are often rendered and explained with precision in a manner quite unique. Also, the very large format of the sheet allows for a level of detail which makes the map perfect for display or study by a Civil War buff, since the detail it contains is to be found almost no where else on this scale.

In Good+ to VG, mostly clean condition.some light damp staining across the blank margin which will disappear once mattedandsome light minor age-wear -- typical for maps of this era, and in no way offensive or severe.

Overall a pleasing example of this interesting map, which is well worthy of display.

Elephant folio sheet measures c. 29 1/4" W x 18 1/8" H.

Printed area measures c. 27" W x 13 3/8" H.

Original center-foldline as issued.

Condition

All of our items are original antique pieces and it is important to keep in mind that many of them have been around for 100 years or more. Individual pieces may have seen many owners and been handled many times over the course of their existence and as a result each piece has developed a history of it's own. Short edge splits (often repaired with archival tape), foxing, discoloration, etc. are all things to expect on items of this type. They rarely distract from the piece and often add to the overall character of the item. Keep in mind when you receive your item that you are not handling a modern copy, you are holding a piece of history, an item that has been around for a very long time and will, with proper care, be around for a long time to come. We try to note any significant flaws in the description, but less noticeable or common characteristics may not be mentioned.

As we are a US based company all of our measurements are in Inches, if you need the size in Centimeters please multiply the supplied measurement by 2.54.
