The historic first definitive map of the
Confederacy. Accurate in the style of a Confederate cartographer-artist during the War Between the States, it is so reliable that one could consider it “The Lost Map of the Confederacy.” The lines, dots, and lettering on the map were hand drawn by the artist, George B. Kirchner, over thousands of hours in a 14 year time span. Kirchner’s Map of the Confederacy was hand colored with extreme detail as if it were to be a Presentation Map to be given to the Congress of the Confederate States of America. This is not a military map. It is a historical map. The definitions of the states and territories are illustrated in accordance with the acts of The Congress of the Confederate States of America in effect for the year 1863. The colored map features state flag illustrations, Confederate canals, seaports, railroads, forts and common roads. The maps are printed on acid free, 80 pound forts and common roads. The maps are printed on acid free, 80 pound cover stock using fade resistant inks. This is a truly remarkable undertaking and will not only be appreciated but also a necessary part of Civil War collecting Suitable for framing.
