Note
  • Alternative title: The Shenandoah National Park area during the Civil War
  • The front side of the map includes information on current terrain (I 81 and state routes) as well as information about Civil War confrontations. The back of the map contains more detailed inserts for specific actions
  • Two text sheets include: a summary paragraph about major engagements; a list of combat that took place near the Park; information about mountain gaps (Manassas Gap, Chester Gap, Thornton Gap, Fisher's Gap, Swift Run Gap, Brown's Gap, and Rockfish Gap); a list of troop movements through the Park gaps (for division-size units and larger); military trivia related to the Park; and other notes about the Park
  • "Although no major battle was fought in the Park, the passes that cut through it were the scene of much activity . . . . The area now known as the Park served primarily as the western flank for military operations in the eastern theater of the Civil War. The mountain range also served as a screen for Confederate invasion."
