1865 Map of Middle Tennessee

These maps are 2 of the 5 sheets of the 1865 Army Corps of Engineers map that the National Archives calls Record Group 77, Records of the Office of Chief of Engineers, Headquarters Map File, T 84 - 1, sheets 1 & 2.

The original is at the National Archives 2 facility in College Park, MD. The map covers much of middle Tennessee, except for the southern tier of counties. It covers from the Tennessee River in the west to Cookeville in the east, showing towns, roads, railroads, landmarks and landowners. Details are better the farther north and west you go on the map. Linked below are Sheets 1 & 2 of the map, covering the western half of the map.
