Marvelous detailed map of the Battle at York Town. Includes dozens of ships at anchor, 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, 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 one of the best contemporary maps of the battle of York Town to be included in a contemporary history of the Revolution. A fine example (narrow margin at lower left, as usual) in attractive color. The map appeared in Dr. Gordon's History of the American War, one of the best contemporary British Accounts of the Revolution.
