CIVIL WAR MAPS AND CHARTS BY STATE

(Western Theatre)

This page contains a condensed list of maps published by the Office of Coast Survey at http://anchor.ncd.noaa.gov/cwstates.htm . Although the list below resides on this server, the map images are stored on the Coast Survey server. This list only lists maps showing operations along the rivers of the Western Theatre. The site named above contains links to many more battlefield and non-naval related maps.

NOTE: Clicking the "image" links below will display a GIF image in this browser window. However, upon clicking the "download" links, you will be asked to select a directory on your hard drive to which a TIFF image will be downloaded. The TIFF files are often quite large (1 to 19 Mb) and will require significant time to download. They can only be viewed with an image viewing/editing program.

Since government agencies sometimes move documents around with telling us (imagine that!), please let us know if any of the links below fail.
