This map isn't part of any series, but we have other maps of the U.S. Civil War that you might want to check out.

In honor of the 149th anniversary of the battle...

(well, things got out of whack a bit in the queue... this was supposed to go out on the anniv of the battle -- September 17th -- but got bounced around for some reason. Today is Memorial Day however; sometimes the queue works in mysterious ways. Went out to Jefferson Barracks cemetery last Memorial Day; it was quite moving. Hope your barbecue is a great one, and I hope that you take at least a moment to reflect on the holiday.)

...here's a map of the battlefield of Antietam/Sharpsburg [gmap] by surveyor and mapmaker W H Willcox
