These archival holdings, now amounting to more than 1.3 million cubic feet, date from the days of the Continental Congress and include the basic records of the legislative, judicial, and executive branches of the Federal Government. The Presidential libraries of Herbert Hoover, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, and Gerald R. Ford contain the papers of those Presidents and many of their associates in office. NARA is also responsible for the presidential papers of Richard M. Nixon, which are stored in the Washington, D.C., area, and of Jimmy Carter, which are stored in Atlanta, Ga. These research resources document significant events in our Nation's history, but most of them are preserved for their continuing practical use in the ordinary processes of government and for the research use of scholars, students, and other individual researchers. </p><p>To make its records better known and easier to use, the National Archives publishes many guides and other finding aids. This guide is the second edition of Civil War Maps in the National Archives, which was first published in 1964 for the centennial of the Civil War. One of the objectives of the national Civil War Centennial Commission was to promote the publication of books and the collection of sources, which will stand as a permanent memorial of this com-mission." The National Archives, by revising Civil War Maps in the National Archives, continues to meet that objective. </p><p>v </p></li><li><p>PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION </p><p>When it was first published in 1964, Civil War Maps in the National Archives reflected the scholarly and popular interest in the Civil War during its centennial. This second edition of Civil War Maps underscores that continuing interest in the war. </p><p>Three significant changes have been made in this new edition. It includes maps from Record Group 109, War Department Collection of Confederate Records, that were not included in the first edition. File numbers of individual maps have been inserted (in parentheses) within par-agraphs that describe maps filed as part of Record Group 77, Records of the Office of the Chief of Engineers; these allow the staff of the National Archives to identify and locate specific maps more quickly. More illustrations have been included to show the type and variety of maps available. </p><p>Many National Archives staff members worked on this publication. The 1964 edition was prepared by Charlotte N. Ashby, Franklin W. Burch, Thomas A. Devan, and Laura E. Kelsay under the direction of A. Philip Muntz. Herman R. Friis provided advice and assistance. </p><p>This second edition was prepared by William H. Cunliffe, William). Heynen, john Dwyer, and Charles Taylor. Mary C. Ryan, John H. Hedges, Camille Cormier, Michael Honey, and Kevin Hardwick helped with the research and revisions. Shelby G. Bale and Constance Potter edited the manuscript, and Richard B. Smith guided it through production. </p><p>Vtt </p></li><li><p>CONTENTS </p><p>Foreword ...................................................................................................... v Preface to The Second Edition . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . vii List of Illustrations . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . xi Introduction . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..... ... . . . . . . . . . . ... . . . . . . . . .. ... . . . . . ........ .. . . .......... ..... .. .. . . . . . . . .
