Map Fredericksburg to Petersburg, Va.

About this Item


  • Fredericksburg to Petersburg, Va.


  • The purpose of this map is uncertain; it may have been to identify the rail lines within the corridor between Fredericksburg and Petersburg. Included (as phrased by Sneden) are the Richmond and Danville Railroad, Lynchburg Railroad, Norfolk and Petersburg Railroad, Virginia Central Railroad, and the Richmond Fredericksburg (Railroad). A few key events in the entire war are indicated such as the surrender of Lee at Appomattox.


  • Sneden, Robert Knox, 1832-1918.
