Further Information

The full history of this plan is still being written but the essential details are as follows:

Contributors: Captain Hyde Parker, Bernard Ratzer

The Plan is made up of 6 engraved sheets with some additional military disposition added by hand, along with color. The plan shows the disposition of British forces from their arrival in New York in September 1776, through the battle of Long Island up through the engagement at Harlem plains. The engagement at White Plains in October 1776 is not included but the capture of Fort Washington in November is. The Plan was compiled by Des Barres in London from several surveys of New York he had to-hand, including what appears to be Bernard Ratzer's original finished-copy for his seminal Map of New York, engraved by Thomas Kitchen and published by Faden and Jeffreys (see A201).
