A slightly reduced size reproduction of this famous 1775 map by Lieut. Page with the ground plan by Montresor. It illustrates the first major conflict of the two armies and is precisely detailed. The map is faithful to the original including the pasted down overlay map (9" x 6") titled "No. 1". The main map shows the final movements and positions of the British troops, while the overlay gives the initial troop deployments.
