This continuous panorama of the east coast of the Confederacy comprises three sheets joined to show Virginia, North and South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia. These are some of the earliest examples of wide scale views that almost show the curvature of the earth. They were used to follow the progress of U.S. Civil War battles.
