This Revolutionary War map is a seldom-seen example that was drawn at the time of this battle in South Carolina. Drawn by British Capt. Vallancey, it shows the position of the troops of the Tory Lord Rawdon versus the American General Nathanial Greene. Noted on the map are Log Town (destroy'd) and Mr. Charlestons burnt. Rawdon's troops won this battle, but had casualties of 30 percent, which forced them to retreat to Charleston. This is a later reissue of William Faden's 1783 edition.
