The atlas is arranged by sections--each containing a cover sheet followed by five plates. The plates are filed consecutively, and map numbers are assigned to individual maps or the entire plate. The title page, table of contents, and index to the maps are filed under this map number (map 3209). The following plates are missing: plates LI-LV, LXXXI, XCII-XCV, and the cover sheet of section 22. Most of the maps used in producing this atlas can be found in the records of the Adjutant General's Office, Department of War, National Archives, RG 94.
