Maps from British periodicals were designed to familiarize the magazine's readers with the location of the hostilities in the American War. This map illustrated the region that had been at the heart of the conflict during the Pennsylvania Campaign. It provides a good picture of the settlements and roads as well as topography. The map extends as far west as Chambers Town in Pennsylvania and includes part of New Jersey. The Boundary Line of Philadelphia run in 1730 divides Pennsylvania from Maryland. The decorative title cartouche features a fort and canon.
