THE JOURNEY THROUGH HALLOWED GROUND

Take the journey to “where America happened" with National Geographic's Journey Through Hallowed Ground Map. This 180-mile long, 75-mile wide swath of land stretching from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to Monticello, Virginia, represents a remarkable historical and cultural landscape. Within it lies the single largest concentration of Civil War battle sites in the country, the homes and birthplaces of nine U.S. presidents including three of the first five, Native American settlements, thirteen national parks, and more. In addition to Civil War sites, this detailed map includes sites from the French and Indian War and Revolutionary War as well as points of interest from World War I and World War II history, and the struggle for civil rights.

What sets National Geographic maps apart from traditional maps are the rich detail, craftsmanship, and depth of information provided in a colorful and user-friendly format.

In addition to its historical significance, the Journey Through Hallowed Ground is a scenic landscape of farms, vineyards, woodlands, rivers, streams, rolling hills, and mountain vistas. Exploring the region's treasures is made easy with a clearly marked road network that includes the Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Scenic Byway, other scenic byways, highways, passenger railroads, Civil War era railroads, railroad stations, airports, and scenic trails. National and state parks, county seats, historical or rural districts and visitor centers are noted as well.
