Civil War map takes up the entire front page...

Item # 687484

May 27, 1862

NEW YORK HERALD, May 27, 1862 

* Rare full page Civil War map & more
* Peninsula campaign - George McClellan

The entire front page is taken up with a huge and very detailed Civil War map with a banner heading: "THE IMPORTANT STRATEGIC MOVEMENTS IN VIRGINIA" along with: "Scene Of Operations in Front of Richmond, in the Valley & on the Line of the Upper Potomac--The Threatened Offensive Movements of the Rebels." Certainly a terrific display item with this huge map.
As if this was not sufficient, page 3 also has a rather large map headed: "Richmond And Its Surroundings", with various one column heads on the Civil War.
Much war reporting on page 2 & elsewhere as well.
Twleve pafges, sone toning at some margins, good condition.
