Complex Map of the Civil War Puts Modern Infographics in Perspective

CivilWarChartFinal.jpg.CROP.article920-large
This 1897 Civil War Infograph, created by Buffalo, NY based Comparative Synoptical Chart Co., Ltd is astonishingly dense with information. Sure, modern web-based info graphs have hover, click and expand features, but this map manages to pack just as much information as any New York Times map using simple paper and ink. Using two axis, color keys, lines, dots and bar graphs to the side, the map manages to relay the paths followed by the Union and Confederate Armies, the locations and dates of their major battles and minor skirmishes, the strength of the federal army and the value of paper money relative to gold. via fastcompany.
