The ongoing Festival of Maps in Chicago features the combined efforts of more than 30 cultural and scientific institutions in order to portray the significance of and reflection of maps upon culture, exploration, discovery, and the world around us. It incorporates the physical display of maps along with lectures, seminars and films to create a better appreciation of the field of cartography.
One of the companion efforts is an accompanying Festival of Maps Blog. It covers a variety of topics and breaking news related to the festival. Recently they provided an update on a topic of specific interest to me, Maps of the Civil War.
