Of possible interest?

There are dozens of maps in the Library of Congress collections suitable for gaming. I've used them on several occasions for running Kreigsspiel games.

You do have to dig around to find maps that are not annotated, if you want to use them for that but of course if you are just interested in troop dispositions, having little blocks drawn on isn't a problem.

It's worth searching by location as well as by named battle as there are a lot of maps that were created for general use before the war, that cover Virginia, or wherever, in great detail (County by County). Searching by battle, unsurprisingly, throws up a lot of the aforementioned blocks, although there are often clear ones too.
