Concise Historical Atlas of the U.S. Civil War

Second Edition

Aaron Sheehan-Dean

  • Presents a concise and readable geographic account of the U.S. Civil War
  • Represents the major campaigns and significant battles, in both the eastern and western theaters
  • Illustrates most of the important themes of the conflict--from emancipation and occupation to politics and civil liberties
  • Covers not just the war years but the antebellum and Reconstruction eras as well, with maps of industrialization, agriculture, and politics that help establish the context within which Americans initiated and recovered from war
  • Each map is accompanied by a page of text that provides context
  • Offers campaign, battle, and data maps that together provide students with a comprehensive visual and graphical narrative of the war
  • Campaign maps feature text boxes that list casualty figures for each side in the major conflicts noted on each map

New to this Edition:

  • Revisions of nearly every map improve their readability and overall effectiveness as study tools
  • More explicitly shows the sequence of battles during a campaign, by numbering each battle in chronological order
  • Campaign maps now indicate whether a battle resulted in a Union victory, a Confederate victory, or a tactical draw
  • Features several new maps including those that show the cash value of farms in the U.S. in 1860; Indian conflicts during the Civil War; POW camps in both the North and the South; and the enfranchisement and disfranchisement of African American voters in the period between 1871 and 1904
  • Instructors who adopt this atlas will have access to PowerPoint slides for all of its maps
