As part of its ongoing coverage of the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War 1861-65, the Washington Post has published a map providing an interactive guide to battles and casualties. The feature highlights both the widespread nature of the conflict and the terrible loss of life
The map shows the location of each confrontation during the conflict indicating numbers of fatalities and wounded in confederate and union armies through proportionately sized circles.
A timeline interface allows you to select a date range of events to display, or watch them unfold over time as an animation. In-depth details about major battles are also available
