Mapping it Out: Freedom of Press Versus Public Safety

Our American Civil War poster is a replica of an 1861 front page of The New York Herald, which features a large map of the positions of rebel forces in Virginia. The back of the poster offers several lesson ideas, such as decoding the map and the implications of revealing such information.

This poster is printed through a generous gift from Civil War Trust.
