Militarymapshave some obvious value to thefamilyresearcher. If our person of interest was in amilitaryunit or fought in a battle we might want to understand the battle or locate his unit, knowing he was there at that time and place. However, even if our research subject was not in themilitary, we should consider the possibilities. Manymilitarymapsare large scale (show a lot of detail) and many show property owners. In the Civil War era it was common to navigate by referring to a location by the land owner’s name. Your ancestor’s house may have been identified on the battlefieldmapas a reference point, or served as a hospital. A farm may have been turned into a cemetery. Also rivers and fords tend to be annotated on thesemaps.
