Albert Boschke's map of the District of Columbia. Boschke produced this map
while moonlighting. He was cartographer with the C&GS. This map was
considered so accurate and the placement of buildings and other cultural objects
so precise, that the Army confiscated the map and the accompanying copper
plates at the beginning of the Civil.
