Panorama of the Seat of War 1862

Composite: Panorama of the Seat of War. Birds Eye View (from) Virginia (to) Florida, John Bachmann, 1862

This close up view of Richmond, Virginia, is part of a three map panorama of the U.S. Civil War in 1862 by John Bachmann of New York. The detail of Richmond is fairly crude and reveals the amazing techniques that Bachmann used to represent the landscape and man made features in the huge panorama. Zooming out to full view shows how effective they were.
