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
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.
might have a very productive time if they enjoy walking tails.
