Description
The title of this manuscript map translates from the French to read “Troop location in Winter quarters on Long, York, and Staten Island.” On this map British and Loyalist troops are depicted in Red while Hessian troops are in Blue. From the location of some of the troops, for example De Lancey's Brigade which was raised in September 1776 on Long Island, we can determine that this map was made following the British advancements in the Battle of Long Island in the summer of 1776 and shows the situation of the troops during that winter.
