Fascinating Revolutionary War Battle map, which traces Rochambeau's route between Boston to Williamsburg and Yorktown.

There are 54 camps shown between Williamsburg and Boston, 40 between Providence and Yorktown, 8 between Lebanon, CT and Phillipsburg, NY, 7 between Trenton and Kakiat, NJ and 14 marches from near Annapolis to the vicinity of Williamsburg, each of the camps being numbered.

In the Rochambeau Collection housed in the Geography Division of the Library of Congress, there is a very similar appearing manuscript map which bears the title Cote De York-town A Boston: Marches De L'Armee 1782. It is probable that the author of this map used the original Rochambeau manuscript map as the source for this work.

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.

Nebenzahl 185; Verner, Yorktown Campaign XII.
