What kind of maps do y'all have when you visit the Battlefields?
I found a fantastic one at Costco called "West point Atlas of the Civil War' for $12.
I understand this is just one section out of a set with the same name.
But the real detailed ones are those the NPS sells that details every regiment's location.
Also, I have one from "Trailhead Graphics" that does excellent work and good to read.
That one has the Monuments listed.

So, what y'all have?  1864 is a big year and good maps are necessary.

I don't have maps when I visit battlefields, I'm afraid. But then the last battlefield of any war I can remember visiting was Fredericksburg and that was back in the late '90s. I suppose I could take my copy of The Official Military Atlas of the Civil War the next time I go someplace where I might visit a Civil War battlefield, but I really don't want to tote that along. Nice thing about the atlas is it's a companion to The War of the Rebellion so I can go on Cornell's Making of America page and bring up the volumes of The War of the Rebellion and be able to follow along in the atlas if I want. But it's a little unwieldy to want to take on vacation and to a battlefield.

That is why I rather like the 'Trailhead.com" maps.  They are
made with water proof paper and fold up like a regular map.
