This is a fine reproduction of the magnificent map of the General Q. A. Gillmore’s line of earthworks in front of Fort Wagner, Morris Island, South Carolina, on July 1863 drawn by Robert Knox SNEDEN, which has been printed on Fine Art Canvas. The Civil War legacy of this soldier, memoirist and artist is an unparalleled treasure trove. This historical map was drawn with pen-and-ink with watercolor painting and highlights. Sneden Maps stand out for their vivid details and accuracy.

Description of the Map. This map depicts the siege of Fort Wagner, Morris Island, Charleston Harbor, SC. Details include the locations of swamps, marshes, and sand ridges, and the elaborate earthworks and trenches constructed by Union troops under Gen. Q. A. Gillmore as they prepared to lay siege to the fort. Color coding indicates the location of Union and Confederate forces. Scale not given.

About the Mapmaker and his Work. Robert Knox SNEDEN [1832-1918] was born in Nova Scotia. At age 18 he moved to New York City. In 1861, Sneden was enlisted in the 40th New York Volunteers Regiment to serve in the US Civil War, and a few months later he got a position as mapmaker, until he was captured. While in prison he made dramatic pencil sketches, hiding them in his shoes or sewed them in his coat and hat. This talented artist crafted some 900 watercolors and sketches. Sneden was able to turn his pencil sketches into watercolors after he was freed in 1864.

We are delighted to offer a great collection of his most important US Civil War maps.
