1 page, 200 x 252mm. (7 13/16 x 9 7/8in.), integral blank bearing carefully lettered title as above and docketed in pencil "March 2 1862." A finely-drawn map executed in delicate brown ink, prepared by Capt. Jordan for military use, and dated only two month's before the battle of Shiloh, showing an L-shaped area along the Tennessee River and the junction of the states of Tennessee, Mississippi and Alabama, depicting the major towns, roads, railroads and watercourses from Florence, Juka, Corinth and Tuscumbia, Alabama, northwest to Grand Junction, Bolivar, Jackson and Humboldt and as far north as Lexington. In the center, in considerable detail, is Pittsburg landing and the network of roads connecting Purdy, Hamburg and other small towns on the west side of the Tennessee. This precise area was to become the site of the battle of Shiloh on 6-7 April 1862, when a Confederate force under Beauregard sprang a surprise assault against Grant's Union army encamped at and around Pittsburg landing. A box at the top right gives a Table of distances from various points. " /> [SHILOH COURTHOUSE, Battle of (also known as PITTSBURG LANDING)].
