The seat of action, between the British and American forces

The map displayed here was printed as a separate issue, as it contained recent information regarding the the British campaign to take New York City. Printed as a broadside, the information could be transmitted in a timely manner - in this case, two months after the events depicted on the map. After an embarrassing defeat at Bunker Hill in Charlestown, MA, Britain was eager to transmit the news of this victory in New York in November 1776 to an eager audience back in England.
