The Model War Map, giving the Southern and Middle States, with all their Water and Railroad Connections.

This map, published by Prang in 1862, shows the eastern coast condensed so that the focus is on the middle states of America from Iowa to Florida. The map shows railway routes, though it is noticeable how many stop before reaching the left hand side of the map, highlighting how railway building across the country was ongoing at the time of the Civil War.

The tables on the right hand side of the map detail routes and distances from major cities and towns, 1860 population statistics, the slave population of slave-holding states and the number of men eligible to vote in each state.
