This is a fine reproduction of the magnificent map of the Official map of the Union works in front of Yorktown, Virginia, prepared by Wm. Heine and R.K. Sneden, Topog. Engineers of 40th N.Y. Vols. 3rd Corps, U.S.A., April 1862 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. This is a high quality reproduction of the original.

The Union army, under General McClellan, prepared to lay siege to Yorktown as part of its advance up the Virginia Peninsula toward the Confederate capital of Richmond. Color coding indicates the location of Union and Confederate forces. Relief shown by hachures. 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.
