Five Civil War maps in one newspaper...
Item # 653404
November 14, 1861
NEW YORK HERALD, Nov. 14, 1861 Certainly the prime feature of this issue is the presence of five Civil War maps. Over half of the front page is dominated by one headed: "IMPORTANT OPERATIONS IN KENTUCKY AND TENNESSEE." while page 3 has an even larger map headed: "OUR BRILLIANT NAVAL VICTORY--Sketch of Beaufort, Port Royal & Forts Beauregard & Walker...". Page 10 has 2 maps: "The Scene Of Action" at Hilton Head, and: "Fort Walker--Diagram of the Fort at Hilton head with Position of Guns". And the back page has a rather large map headed: "THE GREAT NAVAL EXPEDITION" showing the coast from Savannah to above the Santee River (see). Many related column heads & text as well.
Complete in 12 pages, very nice condition.
