DESCRIPTION

This rare map was issued just months after Cornwallis' defeat in Yorktown, Va. The copy displayed here, complete with inset plan of the battle of Yorktown and an elaborate cartouche, is the second state of the map. An additional inset in the lower right depicts the colonies from Massachusetts to Delaware, and illustrates the geography upon which Washington and Rochambeau's armies marched on the way to Yorktown. This map conveys the importance of France's assistance to the Americans during the War.

The physical item is not available at the Boston Public Library.
