A fine Revolutionary War plan centered roughly on White Plains that details the battles and troop positions. The American forces are shown moving northward from a point near present-day Fordham University. Names many property owners, roads, ferries and towns. Locates Fort Washington, Dobbs Ferry, Ft. Independence, Chester, North Castle, etc.
Dark, crisp impression on thick paper. A hint of offsetting, close trimmed at bottom, still very good.
