The Present Area Of The Rebellion. The Loyal States and Territories of the Union in White, the Disloyal in Black.
A large front page newspaper map that gives an account of the war's situation and the position of the secessionists. Up to this time the Federal troops have had numerous successes from Virginia and Kentucky and Tennessee to Missouri. And this map shows the dwindling possessions of the South, along with the vast Union held territories. This front page is dated March 5, 1862, just a month prior to the Battle of Shiloh in which Grant was almost defeated, and the timbre and intensity of the battles, and the war itself would take a different direction.
