"Phil Laino's Gettysburg Campaign Atlas has long been considered as one of the finest and most detailed sets of maps on the Gettysburg Campaign. There are several other books that offer maps on the campaign, some of which are in full color, but no book to date contains as many maps of as many actions and tactical segments as does Laino's classic work.

I have found it to be indispensable as a resource to understand battlefield movements by time segments (particularly on the often-confusing second day of the battle of Gettysburg). Phil's maps help the reader visualize who moved where at what time. In fact, Dave Shultz made extensive use of Phil's maps, including several custom ones, in his book The Second Day at Gettysburg: The Attack and Defense of Cemetery Ridge.

The Gettysburg Campaign Atlas is a useful reference to take to Gettysburg for field studies, battle walks, monument hikes, and similar activities where maps of the opposing regiments, terrain, and obstacles/cover can help deepen the experience. Phil Laino and his publisher, Kevin Drake of Gettysburg Publishing, are to be commended for this excellent work, which in recent years has been revised and expanded to include several more maps…"

I've also found the Savas Beatie Military Atlas series (written by Bradley Gottfried) very good and competitively priced. I'm only half-way through the one on Gettysburg but so far it's good.
I especially enjoyed their one on First Bull Run.
