Confederate States Map

Original 1861 Map of the Confederate States (thumbnail will take you to an enlarged view)

The image above is one of the earliest known maps of the confederacy.  It was printed in February 23, 1861, shortly after the secession of the southern states to form the Confederate States of America.  The map appeared in the February 23, 1861 edition of Harper's Weekly.  The map, for the first time, shows a nation divided;  Divided, North and South, with the fate of Nations hanging in the balance.

The map contains the following title:

MAP

SHOWING THE

COMPARATIVE AREA

OF THE

NORTHERN

AND

SOUTHERN STATES,

EAST OF THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS

1861

The Union States are shown in Gray, and the Confederate States are shown in White.  This is one of the earliest maps of the Confederacy ever created.  The Southern States are shown to be: Texas, the Indian Territory (Oklahoma), Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida. This is a striking map, and was created before the start of the Civil War.  This image of the Nation Divided must have created a sense of foreboding amongst the people of the day who saw it.
