Re-Imagining the U.S. Civil War: Reconnaissance, Surveying and Cartography (Part II)
Video background from The Library of Congress Webcasts site:
"Cartographers during the U.S. Civil War invented new techniques and mapped the country—both Union and Confederate territories—more accurately than ever before in the nation's history. The afternoon session of this day-long conference included presentations on 'Mapping the New Coasts of War,' 'Shedding a Little Light: Early Photographic Techniques Used to Reproduce Maps' and a reenactment and demonstration of the surveying and cartographic methods of the period, using original equipment."
