Historic Civil War Era Maps of Georgia This CD contains 69 rare historic maps and descriptive pages representing fascinating details about Georgia and its vicinity during the Civil War in MrSid format.

The original maps are often quite large, as much as 36" long or larger and quite detailed. With the MrSID software, you can manipulate the map to print the entire map in great detail or zoom into a portion of the map in full detail for viewing or printing.
