Re: [TalkAntietam] Antietam Tour: Sunken Road
I have very much enjoyed your posts...would have loved
to be there myself.
As for the Carman maps, they are finally available on
line for free at the Library of Congress site.
Did I mention for free?
The location is
Each plate is scanned at a pretty good resolution. Like all maps
on the loc, you use the "MrSid" viewer (you need no special
software to interactively view the images on line). If you
want to download the images and view them off line, you need
MrSid software (which is free). If you have photoshop, you
can get a MrSid plugin which will allow to to import a
*.sid file into photoshop. A terrific resource.
This appears to be the original 1904 edition, not the revised 1908.
