Detailed battle plan of the Battle of Yorktown, the final battle of the American Revolution.

The map provides a detailed look at the battle of Yorktown, based upon French sources. The positions of the American, French and English forces and artillery are shown, along with an explanatory note. The locations of commanding officers are also noted.

The map appeared in Francois Soules' Histoire des troubles de l'Amerique Anglais, published in Paris in 1787. Because the map lacks a title and is therefore somewhat difficult to describe, it has not gotten the attention that it deserves in contemporary bibliographies.
