Product Description
Maps of the Civil War Book of Postcards
A Book of Postcards from the National Archives

The National Archives and Records Administration—home of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, and the Bill of Rights—is the federal agency charged with safeguarding billions of our nation's most treasured records. Among these are more than 8,000 maps from the Civil War era, which the agency holds in trust for the American people.

This book of postcards, produced by the Foundation for the National Archives, contains maps of large, well-known battlefields, including Fredericksburg, Shiloh, Antietam, and Bull Run (Manassas), as well as some of the smaller, lesser-known skirmishes of the war, fought among homesteads, in fields, and in forests. Also included in this collection are maps of battles in which African American soldiers played a major role, maps of a Freedman's Village near Arlington, Virginia, and maps of "Contraband Quarters" on Mason's Island, near Washington, D.C., where escaped or freed slaves sought refuge during and after the war.

These maps and thousands more can be found in the Cartographic and Architectural Records Section of the National Archives in College Park, Maryland. To learn more about the Civil War, visit the National Archives Experience's Discovering the Civil War exhibition, opening at the National Archives Building in Washington, D.C., in 2010 and traveling the country.
