More Civil War maps

I know I posted a link to another site with Civil War maps last year, but now here's another: a site with historical maps of the South, done by a Confederate Army engineer: Gilmer Civil War Maps Collection at UNC.

I found one map of the local area by searching North Carolina (didn't check Tennessee) and found this one, showing the entire NC-SC-GA mountain area....this is a small section of the map, enlarged....

Interesting things to be found in old maps. The area just northwest of us is identified as Laurel Valley, a name I've not seen anywhere in modern maps.
But then, I guess it was a valley before it became a lake.
