Maps, and More Maps

The last poll question I asked was this: "Which major Civil War campaign is most deserving of a new major map atlas?" The result was interesting.

Fifty-three individuals voted, which is a fairly significant number in my estimation.

I was convinced the Maryland Campaign would win pulling away. I was wrong. Here are the results:

Maryland: 13 (24%)

Atlanta 12 (22%)

Shiloh 5 (9%)

Petersburg 23 (43%)

Now, what does this mean?

In terms of the Maryland Campaign, it's a lot easier to follow than the Petersburg Campign. Plus the Petersburg Campaign had so much going on as it continued.

Hope all is well.

Hello Steve

I think you are right. Petersburg is a large, sprawling affair that has yet to be covered well, deeply. Thanks for your input. I look forward to more.

It means I expect a map study of the Petersburg Campaign from Savas Beatie by early next year! ;-)
