A large wall map focusing on the southern states during the Civil War. While most of the Union states are noted only in outline, the states of Kentucky, Maryland and Delaware and Missouri are well delineated.

J.T. Lloyd was active as a map publisher during the latter half of the 1850’s to the mid 1860’s. He seems to have focused his output on maps to the public eager for information on the war. He had a flair for self-promotion, often publishing letters from government officials, such as Gideon Wells, as to the usefulness of his maps. He also attacked a fellow map publisher, H.H. Lloyd, no relation, as a producer of inferior products. After the war he seems to have disappeared without any further output.
