About this Item

Title
Plan of the battle of Mine Run, Virginia : fought Monday 30th Novr. 1863.
Summary
Meade's intention was to cross the Rapidan River at Germanna Ford, travel west toward Orange Court House, and force Lee from his position in Orange County, just south of river. Alerted to these movements, Lee deployed his forces in strong defensive positions along Mine Run. There being no feasible point of attack, Meade withdrew his forces to winter quarters at Culpeper.
Details on this map include the Rapidan River to the north, Richardsville on the Rappahannock River to the northeast, Mine Run to the west and the Orange & Alexandria Railroad to the south.
