Map of the Western Theater of the American Civil War_by Hal Jespersen

At the link above, you will find an exceptional map showing the vast scale of the Western Theater, and the huge distances covered by the victorious Federal armies in the West. The westerners not only decisively defeated Confederate forces in their region, but marched East to capture all of the eastern Confederacy south of Virginia.

Hal Jespersen has created a large number of excellent scholarly maps of battles and campaigns of the American Civil War. You can explore them all at the link in the resource section of this blog page.
