i sent this out earlier today on conventional social  networks, but i 
know a lot of you probably
don't participate in them...

a year or so backSteve Coast 
<https://www.facebook.com/SteveCoast?group_id=171170822943323>called for 
some Civil War related mapping. i'm not sure how much has
really happened (not nearly enough, i think), but i'm here in Northern 
VA visiting Chancellorsville and
The Wilderness, and so i give you the First Day at Chancellorsville Trail:


and as an added bonus, a modern approximation of the route of Jackson's 
Flank March on the second day:


this latter is a signed NPS route, not just something i made up on my 
own, and the location of the roads
hasn't shifted much since 1863, so it's pretty close to where Jackson's 
troops actually marched that day...

i spent some time at the Wilderness Battlefield today, so there's more 
to come. i may well
spend a day at Spotsylvania before we leave on Sunday. lots to map here. 
somebody local
might have a very productive time if they enjoy walking tails.
