1861-65 Large Antique American Civil War Map of The Potomac River, Alexandria

Cartographer :American Civil War

This very large, highly detailed original antiquemap of the Potomac River and Virginia - stretching from Alexandria in the north, Dumfries in the SW to Cooks Ferry in the south - was published during the American Civil War.

This map does not have a title but research has dated the map to the American Civil War. This was determined by the size and layout of the City of Alexandria but more importantly the existence of Fort Ellsworth to the west of Alexandria, which was built in 1861 and decommissioned after the war in 1865. (Ref: Tooley; M&B)
