A plan of New York Island, with part of Long Island, Staten Island & east New Jersey, with a particular description of the engagement on the Woody Heights of Long Island, between Flatbush and Brooklyn, on the 27th of August 1776

Published just weeks after the events depicted on it, William Faden's plan of New York Island shows the American in British forces as they were stationed in August 1776. Known as the "Faden Campaign Map," the plan details Gen. Howe's tactics and progress of events, but minimizes the activities of the Americans, including the successful movement of Washington's men from Brooklyn Heights to Manhattan the night of August 29. Displayed here is state 5 of the map, with Fort Lee or Ft. Constitution added and Younkers unlabeled.
