Bradley M. Gottfried’s The Maps of Antietam: An Atlas of the Antietam (Sharpsburg) Campaign, Including the Battle of South Mountain, September 2-20, 1862, is one more valuable contribution to the Savas Beatie series of cartographic histories of Civil War battles.
Gottfried’s work breaks down the entire campaign into 21 map sets or “action-sections” enriched with 124 original full-page color maps. The spectacular cartographic creations bore down to the regiment and battery level. The battle is visualized into segments as small as 15-30 minutes. Part of a fantastic series that includes maps studies of Chickamauga and First Bull Run.
