Documenting the Chattanooga Campaign, the Atlanta Campaign, the March to the Sea, and the Carolinas Campaign, these fine maps detail Sherman's movements from 1863 to 1865. Much of William T. Sherman's fame stems from the series of military campaigns he planned and executed during the second half of the Civil War. This group of maps provides both an overview of his movements during these key operations, as well as detailed views of various aspects of the campaigns. The manuscript maps on linen were very likely drawn in the field for the use of staff officers, while the map inscribed by Sherman after the war serves as a vivid reminder of the scope of his military achievements.
