Pencil on paper sketched map of the Stafford, Virginia area from Aquia Creek to Belle Plain, with a pasted note that reads “made and sent home from camp in 1863 by C.H. Boyce.” The records show over a dozen possible matches for soldiers that could have been camped in the area depicted. The map shows the location of the Potomac River and Aquia Creek, as well as docks, railroads, campsites, and batteries. Part of the Army of the Potomac camped in this area after the Battle of Fredericksburg, through the winter of 1862-1863. The map measures 6 5/8” by 4” and is in good condition with very minor soiling. A scarce hand-drawn soldier’s map that could provide a wealth of information on the Civil War features of the area.
Comes housed in a 6 x 8 inch display case with red velvet backing and descriptive card.
