This Mount Vernon produced map shows the region around New York City that became the focal point of the American Revolution during the Summer and Fall of 1776.  This map shows the Battle of Long Island and other campaign actions including the Battle of Kip's Bay, The Battle of Harlem Heights, The Battle of Fort Washington, and the capture of Fort Lee.  The large British army under the command of General William Howe drove the Continental Army from this region and down through New Jersey.  Washington's army suffered tremendous casualties and was on the brink of total defeat after this campaign.
