Dispatches in 1-2 days
Handmade to order
This map was originally published on newspaper - the cheapest and most fragile type of paper. That it has survived 150 years makes this map extremely rare - and the newspaper adds a wonderfully unusual texture to this map.
Because this is a railroad map, it primarily shows railroads - but there's a lot more going on here, including forts, barracks, court houses, cannon batteries, the distance in miles between towns... it's a wonderful detailed map.
In an added bonus, because this was published in a newspaper, there's all sorts of other bits of info printed on the map. Take a look at some of the close-up images and enjoy a slice of 1861 history.
This map would make a great birthday or Christmas gift for someone from the Confederate states, or perhaps just a historian who's into the Civil War.
This map will be completely sharp at all sizes, though I would recommend going for a larger size if possible so that you can really enjoy the level of detail. I can print it at sizes up to 100 inches (250cm).
You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes our maps pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame, or if you'd like to frame one of the larger maps. We use super-clear acrylic (perspex/acrylite) in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.
If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.
I am very confident you will like your old map. I have been doing this since 1984 and I'm a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews.
This is the cheapest place to buy my maps online.
I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
