  • The Colton Map (1861) displays in great detail of all of North Carolina and South Carolina and
    bordering sections of Georgia, Tennessee, and Virginia. It includes the intricate network of railroads
    that was created in the antebellum period and that was so important during the Civil War.

    Civil War and is significant for its detailed depiction of the western mountain region.
