Ashport to Memphis Confederate map
- View Full Item
This map showing Confederate military installations along the Tennessee portion of the Mississippi River was hand-drawn on linen by Albert Martin around 1861. It stretches from Ashport in the north to Memphis in the south and shows Confederate artillery batteries, with number, size and type of guns. Though detailed in its presentation of waterways, swamps, bluffs, plantations, certain landowners, and the numbered islands in the Mississippi River, its primary purpose was to depict the Confederate gun emplacements--Forts Harris, Randolph and Claiborn [sic: should be Cleburne for Col. Patrick R. Cleburne whose 1st Arkansas Regt. built the earthworks, later in the war called Fort Pillow]--protecting the river above Memphis early in the war. Troop deployments in the area are also indicated.
