Charleston Harbor map

This page offers over 200 maps I have created for American Civil War battle articles in Wikipedia, almost always for articles I wrote myself. They are available to others under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license, which means that if you use them—either modified or unmodified—you must abide by the terms of that license and attribute the images to me with the text “Map by Hal Jespersen, www.cwmaps.com.”

The source files listed below as “AI5” were created in Adobe Illustrator CS5, “AI6” in Illustrator CS6, “AI CC” in Illustrator CC (Creative Cloud, v17). The graphic files—click on the thumbnail to access—are all in PNG, which is a lossless format for high fidelity images. A small number of these maps are rendered with shaded relief backgrounds, which I created from USGS national elevation datasets and then processed with Adobe Photoshop prior to importing them as a background into Adobe Illustrator. The Photoshop PSD files associated with these images are not included below. Please contact me using the CONTACT tab above if you would like to discuss the process for modifying these maps. The “Recent Update” column represents only changes after April 2, 2011. (Note that I update the thumbnails shown below only when there are significant visual changes that might show up in the tiny images.) Those maps with italicized names are obsolete versions, replaced by maps with similar names, but are kept here so that Wikpedians can still access them.
