Looking for detailed Maps of Gettysburg
Posted on: 1/22/2018 2:17:33 PM
Hi All,

This is my first post on here, if I missed a previous post I apologize. I am trying to locate a detailed overhead map of 1863 Gettysburg. My hope is that it will have road names, names of all the farms in and around Gettysburg, as well as the major roads in the area. If anyone knows where I can find something like this or close, please let me know. Thank you so much for the help.

Have you looked at the Perry-Castaneda Map Collection at UTexas?

The following is a link to a site which includes a number of Gettysburg maps and allows magnification with good resolution.

I've been enjoying the maps on the link and the UT website. I've been looking for but cannot find a map of the borough of Gettysburg it's self in 1863, buildings and all. I'd like to see just how small the town was and actually point out the saddlery where Culp worked before he moved to TX and John Burns house. I know I've seen something but it was years ago and I cannot find anything not focusing on the battlefield.
