unpublished, this apparently simple chart contains a great deal of
detail and information pertaining to the British naval blockade of Long
Island Sound during the Anglo-American war of 1812-1815. The chart was,
primarily drawn as a hydrographic survey for the benefit the British
squadron of ships patrolling the region which was commanded at this time
- by no other than Sir Thomas Masterman Hardy, Admiral Horatio Nelson's
Flag Captain at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.
