Description

Scarce Revolutionary War Plan of the Siege of Charleston by the British in 1776.

Fascinating Revolutionary War battle plan showing the British attack on Charleston that occurred June 28, 1776. The British fleet under Admiral Peter Parker bombarded Fort Sullivan, but was unable to destroy it and in fact were forced to retreat and withdraw to New York under heavy fire.

The map locates the British 1st and 2nd brigades on Long Island, and shows the British fleet firing on Camp Sullivan while the "Rebel Ships" are located off of Charlestown Neck. The "Rebel Camp and Entrenchments" are located as well.
