New York: The New York Herald, 1861. Very Good. Item #13431
A BEAUTIFUL original 1861 newspaper with a full, front-page map showing Union and Confederate troop dispositions just outside of Washington, DC, in Northern Virginia after the Battle of Bull Run.
This historic depicts the front of war during its first year and after its first major battle, labeling the towns of Fairfax, Vienna, Centreville, Alexandria, Washington, DC and Georgetown. South Wesstern Maryland is also well represented, as is Bull Run and the long defunct local railroads, such as the Loudon & Hampshire RR as well as the Orange and Alexandria RR, which would be vital in supplying troops and material to both armies.
The map depicts Forts Ellsworth, Corcoran, Albany, Runyon as well as the entrenchments and other defense works of both armies as well as the troops dispositions of the key Generals involved.
