Podcast Additional Resources: “Making Civil War Maps”

Last week we released the podcast episode with Edward Alexander, Dan Welch, and Chris Mackowski talking about Civil War cartography in the 1860’s and the modern era. Edward has recently launched his own business, creating historical maps. He shares about some of his sources, challenges, and successes.

Today, we’ve collected some of Edward’s maps and other cartography related articles from our archives to add to the discussion of this topic. Haven’t had a chance to hear the podcast? You can find it on Patreon for just $1.99.
