Excellent battle plan, based upon Faden's map of the Hudson River, extending from Haverstraw Bay and Verplanks Point to just North of Fort Montgomery. In the south, the Transports at Kings Ferry are shown, with notes on the troop landings on October 6 & 7 and a detachment sent west to occupy the pass. Up river near Fort Independence, the Preston Come. Hotham, Tartar, and Mercury are shown, along with the Galley's under Wallace. To the west, several overland movements are noted, including Vaughan & Tryon's and Campbell's detachement. Near Ft Montgomery are several burning Galley's & Frigates, along with a battle & path of retreat of the Americans. The original Faden is now pushing $10,000.00, making this an excellent value. Minor reinforcement to folds.
