SOUTHAMPTON, MASS. —
In recognition of the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War, Boston Rare Maps is presenting a unique selection of original maps and ephemera from the war. Included is an iconic 1864 Currier & Ives political car- toon, a schematic map detail- ing the battle of Gettysburg and a handwritten report by a South Carolina general assess- ing the tactical situation in Charleston Harbor before the bombardment of Fort Sumter. Highlighting this selection is
a scarce map by Theodore Dit- terline that condenses the major events of the three-day Battle of Gettysburg into a sin- gle image. Published in 1863, it captures both the enormous scale of the encounter and the fundamental tactical elements detailing the preliminary encounter on July 1, the overnight consolidation of the Union Army in a vast arc along Cemetery Ridge and Culps Hill, the Confederate assault on the Union flanks on July 2 and the climactic “Pickett’s Charge” against the Union cen-
ter on July 3. It was originally issued as bound into Ditterline’s “Sketch of the Battles of Gettysburg,” a 24-page pamphlet published just months after the events described. The iconic political cartoon, “The True Issue,” was pub- lished in 1864 by Currier & Ives. Produced during the 1864 presidential campaign that pit- ted incumbent President Abra- ham Lincoln against his for- mer general George McClellan, in this image, Lincoln and Jef- ferson Davis engage in a tug- of-war over a map of the Unit- ed States. McClellan is given a sympathetic portrayal, shown trying to hold the two men, and indeed the country, together, exclaiming, “The Union must be preserved at all hazards!” A six-page manuscript report from South Carolina Brigadier General James Simons dated January 1, 1861, outlines the tactical situation in Charleston Harbor prior to the bombard- ment of Fort Sumter, the open- ing battle of the war. Addressed to South Carolina Governor Francis Pickens, it
The emphasis throughout The Santa Fe Show will be on the aes- thetic importance and design significance of the works presented by galleries, artists and designers.
