Civil War Atlas
The Old North State at War: A North Carolina Civil War Atlas is a comprehensive study of the impact of the war on the Tar Heel State, incorporating 99 newly-prepared maps. The large format (17” by 11”) volume highlights every significant military engagement and analyzes the war’s social, economic and political consequences through tables, charts and text.
Craig Symonds, retired professor at the U.S. Naval Academy, biographer of Joseph E. Johnston and recipient of the Lincoln Prize says of the project:
This detailed, informative, and beautifully presented atlas of North Carolina during the Civil War provides pictorial and cartographic depictions of all the battles and skirmishes that punctuated the war years. In authoritative text, comprehensive tables, and most of all in beautiful full-color maps, it highlights the history of North Carolina in the Civil War, and the ways in which its unique geography influenced combat.
The only state-level atlas of its kind, the book is a sesquicentennial project of the North Carolina Office of Archives and History. Check out previews of the Atlas's fascinating pages by clicking on the images below.
