During the course of the Civil War, Northern daily newspapers printed over 2,000 separate maps depicting campaigns and military operations. Although they are important primary documents, these maps have been largely overlooked by historians and enthusiasts because of the difficulty in locating them. This cartobibliography is the first finding aid to the war's journalistic cartography. The book lists all known Civil War maps published in eighteen daily newspapers in Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Columbus, New York, Philadelphia, and St. Louis. Entries consist of map title, scale, dimensions, author (when known), engraver (when known), and notes on sources of information and geographic coverage. Maps are grouped by newspapers, which are arranged alphabetically, and listed chronologically under each newspaper. A thorough geographic, subject, and personal name index provides access to the entries.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Bosse's bibliography is useful for studying 19th-century American journalism as well as military and geographic aspects of the war. Libraries with strong research collections in Civil War history or microfilm runs of at least some of the included newspapers should aquire it." - Choice
"...a competent work and historians may find it to be helpful and even interesting. The writing itself is so good that at times one might confuse it for a first-hand account. [An] invaluable tool for Civil War scholars." - Victorian Periodicals Review

The 2,000 maps published in 18 daily newspapers in Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Columbus, New York, Philadelphia, and St. Louis are grouped by newspaper, arranged alphabetically, and listed chronologically. Bosse is curator of maps at the University of Michigan library." - Communication Booknotes Quarterly
