As the country prepares to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, a number of organizations and groups are planning various activities, academic seminars, and other events. This atlas of the War of the Rebellion (as it was also called) was created decades after the war was over to accompany the official records of the Union and Confederate Armies. Published in 1895, the 175 plates in the volume contain more than 1,000 maps, illustrations and diagrams detailing battlefield maps, scenes from the conflict, and military equipment. Visitors can browse the maps by state, city, and bodies of water. This fine resource was created by the Digitization Projects Group at the Baylor University Libraries, which also happens to have a pristine copy of the atlas as part of their Texas Collection. It's quite an amazing document, and one that will be of great interest to those who appreciate geography, American history, and military affairs.
