Original Size: 14 x 17 inches (35.5 x 43.2 cm)

This is a fine print reproduction of a map of Maine published by Johnson and Ward out of New York in 1862. The map is color coded by county and shows railroads, wagon roads, rivers, canals, ports, large towns, and villages of the mid-19th century. The map includes two vignettes of Chimney Rocks and French Broad River and of Table Mountain.

The timing of the publication of this map is noteworthy as the United States had just entered the American Civil War with both North and South Carolina having seceded from the Union just two years prior. Therefor, this is a map of North and South Carolina as Confederate States. An inset map in the lower right shows Charleston, its harbor and vicinity with a layout of Fort Sumter. The "shot hear around the world," was fired upon Fort Sumter on April 12, 1861, which is nearly universally regarded as the start of the American Civil War.

What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
