An atlas of the 28 districts as they were in 1825 when Robert Mills (architect of many Charleston buildings, Walterboro Court House, Washington Monument, etc.) completed the compilation. Closed, the atlas measures 11 1/4 x 8.5 inches. T are 28 large, fold out (some single and some double fold) maps all of which show the names of numerous, family sites, grist mills, taverns, distilleries, plantations, meeting houses, churches, military muster locations, sites of battles and skirmishes, homes of generals and other ranking military men. Any site of relavence. T is a "place name" index and a "full name" index as well as an overall map of the state which allows for quick location of any ancestor or person you might be looking for. Natural features are also shown. Districts named are: Abbeville, Barnwell, Beaufort, Charleston, Chester, Chesterfield, Colleton, Darlington, EdgeField, Fairfield Georgetown, Greenville, Horry, Kershaw, Lancaster, Laurens, Lexington, Marion, Marlboro, Newberry, Orangeburg, Pendleton, Richland, Spartanburg, Sumter, Union. Williamsburg, York. These maps are also excellent for those who search old homesites with a metal detector or those who look for artifacts and bottles at old ferry landings or battle sites, etc. Most of the roads can be easily identified when cross referenced to current maps. Atlas was reprinted in 1980, is new and never used thus no tears, stains, etc. Hard bound with leather (or leather like) cover with gold print. Reprinted from an original in the possession of the South Carolina Historical Society, Charleston. Item ships inexpensively under "printed material" rate. Postage for buyer's account. I also have many, much larger, actual size Mills maps of individual districts. PLease take a look. Thank you.
