This is a fine reproduction of the magnificent map of the U.S. forts and batteries near Alexandria Virginia, September 1862, showing Fort Lyon with extended works 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. Shows the locations of Union fortifications surrounding Alexandria, Virginia, including forts Lyon and Ellsworth in Fairfax County. The locations of Hunting Creek and the Potomac River are also indicated. 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. On 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 on 1864.

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