Plate 6: City of Richmond, 1864. Even though the capital of the Confederacy was not evacuated until 1865, Richmond was the target of some extremely violent fighting in 1864. Notable among this was General Butler's advance, which was halted far south of the city. Late in 1864, with the city still in Confederate hands, the Union armies wanted a good map of this city that they hoped eventually to take. Superintendent Bache was away from the Washington office of the Coast Survey at the time, so the request was received by the second in charge, Assistant Julius Hilgard. Under Hilgard's direction, Assistant Adolph Lindenkohl, assisted by others, compiled this map from the sources named thereon and whatever intelligence information they had at the time. This map was in use by the Union army when Richmond was evacuated the next year. This map is a revised version of the original 1864 map, updated in 1962.
