With this 2-map documentary, in the form of satellite map, you can zoom in on over 390 Civil War battlefields of the American Civil War.

Part-1: Lee’s Southern Assertiveness years of 1861 to mid 1863
Part 2: Grant’s and Sherman’s Divide and Conquer years of mid 1863 through 1865

Since many of the battles occurred at the same location in different years can be confusing, I color-coded them by year so that you can tell the difference of when events occurred and the battles are in chronological order by date.

In addition, you can envision the topology of each battle by activating the 3D terrain mode, and using the compass to rotate and see the horizon, you can view the map with mountains that you can zoom in on in order to understand how each side viewed it.
