Historical map showing the Revolutionary War battle in detail. The map covers Manhattan from Manhattan Square north to Port Washington Point and Fort George. The positions of the Americans, the British Assailants, and the flanking parties of Major Leitch's and Colonel Knowlton are shown with letters. The detailed troop positions and movements are shown through blue and red block-printed color. Very detailed map of a relatively undeveloped Upper Manhattan. Fancy Victorian titling.
