    Description

    Map of the Gettysburg Battlefield Drawn within Days of the Battle with annotations describing the battle and its aftermath, 10" x 8", on lined, embossed paper. The map shows the town of Gettysburg, the cemetery (Cemetery Hill), breastworks, the seminary (Butts Academy), the rail line, and Round Top, among other important landmarks. The notations include a description of the battlefield, "Perfect desolation everything shot away dead reables [sic] & horse trees bushes & fence & posts all gone a perfect valley of death." The map is a poignant reminder of the devastation that the battle brought to the quiet Pennsylvania countryside. Tears along the folds, minor staining, and tape repairs else very good.
