The second in the Library of Congress Classics series, this book incorporates maps, photographs, and original drawings to illustrate the war in a never-before-seen way
Colorado, mapping the Centennial state through history : rare and unusual maps from the Library of Congress by Vincent Virga( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a sense, the State of Colorado was born not on August 1, 1876 & mdash;when President Ulysses S. Grant signed a proclamation admitting it to the Union as the thirty-eighth state & mdash;but on the day this great land was first depicted on a map. Over the centuries, each such map has become yet another precious link not only in the history of the state, but also in the ever evolving & ldquo;Colorado & rdquo; as imagined by its residents and, more broadly, by the rest of America. Colorado: Mapping the Centennial State through History provides a fascinating journey into the past of the Centennial State through gloriously detailed maps from the Library of Congress. Edited and with a foreword by renowned photo editor and author Vincent Virga, it also includes compelling historical essays by Colorado writer Stephen Grace. Together, these further weave the visually stunning cartographic record into a drama of settlement and change. Mapping States through History is the first series to assemble & mdash;in full color, state-by-state & mdash;an in-depth collection of rare, historically significant maps of the cities, states, counties, towns, and events that make up each of America & rsquo;s fifty states. Produced in collaboration with the Library of Congress, it offers an extraordinary glimpse into the history of the United States through the maps and their narrative captions, as well as Vincent Virga & rsquo;s foreword and historical essays by local writers. Each map thus becomes a virtual time machine that tells us much about the places we live in today

Civil War Maps brings together materials from three premier collections: the Library of Congress Geography and Map Division, the Virginia Historical Society, and the Library of Virginia. Among the reconnaissance, sketch, and theater-of-war maps are the detailed battle maps made by Major Jedediah Hotchkiss for Generals Lee and Jackson, General Sherman's Southern military campaigns, and maps taken from diaries, scrapbooks, and manuscripts, all available for the first time in one place. Most of the items presented here are documented in Civil War Maps: An Annotated List of Maps and Atlases in the Library of Congress, compiled by Richard W. Stephenson in 1989. New selections from 2,240 maps and 76 atlases held by the Library may be added monthly
