Civil War Map

at Sumner County Museum, Gallatin TN

Civil War Map

James Willette, a cartographer of the U.S. Army of the Cumberland drew the large map on the wall in 1864. It shows the small city of Gallatin and the surrounding area. It is drawn on waxed linen and is a topographical map as well as showing the elevation in feet from sea level. Look for the circles which indicate the crest of hills. Houses, taverns, roads, churches, crops, cotton fields and timber areas are all shown on this detailed map. But the most interesting thing about the map is: all the trees are shaded to 3 p.m. in the afternoon!
