  1. [Above map found on page 8 of New York Herald of 29 SEP 1861 and is in Public Domain.] It is significant because the Rebel incursion into Kentucky had occurred earlier in the month, followed by General Grant's occupation of Paducah on September 6th. The New York Herald provided its readers with visual representation of the areas of importance; and inadvertently highlighted the foci of armed conflict to come, and staging areas for imminent offensive operations: Fort Columbus; New Madrid, Missouri (and the swamp General Pope had to march through to reach New Madrid for the Island No.10 campaign); Cairo Illinois (staging site for Naval operations and Army troop transports); Smithland; the locations of Fort Henry, Fort Donelson, Belmont (although not marked, easy enough to figure out due to state boundary lines and the siting of Columbus Kentucky.) One can never have too many maps... https://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn83030313/1861-09-29/ed-1/seq-8/ New York Herald of 29 SEP 1861.
  2. Coppee Map of Shiloh (1866) One of the early maps of the Battle of Shiloh (published in Grant and his Campaigns in 1866 by Henry Coppee) this map suffers from a typical failure of the early map creators: attempting to place TWO days of troop movements on ONE map. AND it does not show REBEL troop positions... at all. Some of the other failings: Owl Creek Bridge not shown Shunpike not shown The map does not continue far enough west to site elements of McDowell's Brigade Grant's Last Line not shown Sherman's Final position on Day One not shown. With the above listing the failures, there are some positive attributes to this early Shiloh map: Tilghman Branch is sited, but not accurately (joined Owl Creek further west) Accurate siting of the River Road (used by Lew Wallace to reach the battlefield) Accurate depiction of the flooded Snake Creek and siting of Wallace Bridge Ownership of Second Division attributed to Smith (WHL Wallace was acting-commander) Good depiction of the jumbled road network at Pittsburg Campground Accurate siting of “the other” Pittsburg Landing (on east bank of Tennessee River, used by Nelson to board transports for the battle taking place on the west bank of the Tennessee) Upper Landing at Pittsburg also sited accurately (where many steamers tied up when Pittsburg Landing was full) Involvement of USS Tyler and USS Lexington indicated Good depiction of woods, scrubland and clearings.
