This interesting chart extends to include Trenton and Sandy Hook, north to Tappan and Dobbs Ferry, and to New York City, Staten Island and the western part of Long Island. Details troop positions, roads, rivers and mountain ranges. Scores of towns are located, including some rather odd ones: Aquakununk, Watessing, Bottlehill, Vealtown, Pluckamin, and Quibbletown. A fine Revolutionary War plan.
