Alabama and the American Civil War are the emphasis here although the collection has a number of maps relating to North America in general. The extensive Civil War map collection includes some maps printed in the Confederacy. The portion of the collection relating to Alabama contains important early maps not only of the state, but of various counties, cities, and townships. There are a number of city atlases relating to Alabama in the collection. The Collection also holds an original set of the rare ATLAS TO ACCOMPANY THE OFFICIAL RECORDS OF THE WAR OF THE REBELLION.
