Cruchley's New Map of the United States (East) with Upper and Lower Canada
Publisher: London: G.F. Cruchley
Dated May 1861, Cruchley’s New Map of the United States (East) with Upper and Lower Canada highlights the seceded Confederates states in yellow, the Union in green and the Canadian border in red. Delaware, Maryland and Kentucky are highlighted in yellow despite the fact that they remained within the Union. These Border States, especially Kentucky, witnessed internal civil wars as the states divided over secession. G.F. Cruchley was a London-based ‘map publisher and globe manufacturer’.
