There are two fun, new georeferenced maps on the NC Maps site that we wanted to share.
The first is a map of the Battle of Bentonville from the Official Atlas of the Civil War. The map is accurate enough, and the satellite image good enough, to be able to see how the landscape shaped the battle.
The other one is a map of the golf course and racetrack at Pinehurst Country Club in 1922. Many of the holes line up pretty well, showing where things have changed, and where they haven’t.
We’ve got a postcard of a country club in Pinehurst, dating to ca. 1915-1930. It’s unclear whether this image is the same country club in the map above, but the footprint of the clubhouse on the map looks like it could possibly be the same one in the postcard below.
