Long Island (or Brooklyn or Brooklyn Heights), New York British Battle Map


The Battle of Long Island (or Brooklyn or Brooklyn Heights) was fought on 27 August 1776, less than two months after the Declaration of Independence. The British drove Washington and the Continental Army back to Manhattan. Washington's escape back to Manhattan prevented a potential disaster that could have ended with the Revolution quelled soon after it started.

This British hand drawn map by "An Officer of the Army" refers to the Continentals as "Rebels" throughout the map and the explanation on the left side. Staten Island, New Jersey, Harlem, Flushing, Coney Island, and other locations familiar to Americans today are annotated on the map.
