An original antique map of the southern states from Mississippi to eastern Texas.  Issued just before the Civil War in Smith’s New Geography, this map was intended to show the most important geographical, political, transportation and social information available.  Very good detail of the railroads in the area, which would play an important part in the coming conflagration.
