General Map of Charleston Harbor (with crab artwork)
This historic 1865 map of the Charleston Harbor shows the Rebel Defenses and various Obstructions. It is both a military map and a nautical chart depicting the Charleston Harbor and its approaches including shorelines, channels, fortifications, and armaments. The map covers Charleston’s coastline from the Isle of Palms at the north to the Stono River at the south. As a military map, it shows many important military sites and events of the Civil War.
A painting of a crab is added in the lower right corner of the map.
