Description

Marvelous detailed map of the Battle at Yorktown, from the French edition of David Ramsay's Histoire de la Revolution d'Amerique.

Includes multiple of ships engaged in battle (some of which are sinking) and extensive battle notes and troop movements with an explanatory key, the positions of the various armies, General Washington's Quarters, Rochambeaus Quarter's, Knox's Quarters, Clinton's Quarters, Baron von Steuben's Quarters, and the locations of a number of French commanders, the positions of the various batteries and groups of armies and Militias, noted by state (Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Rhode Island, etc.) and many other battle details.

This is a scarce and detailed contemporary map of the battle of York Town, one of the best to be included in a contemporary history of the Revolution.
