1. Prise de Newport par d'Estaing, 1778

Map of Newport and Narragansett Bay (R.I.) probably traced in the nineteenth century from an unidentified manuscript (in French naval archives?). Shows the August 1778 maneuvers by the French fleet commanded by Charles Henri, Comte d' Estaing against British forces during the siege of Newport. Also shows the fleet commanded by Charles Louis d'Arsac, Chevalier de Ternay, as stationed in 1780. Identifies French and British ships, army camps, and fortifications, but lacks key corresponding to lettered land sites.
