Engraving with original hand-coloring. Plate size: 18 x 27". Inventory#: p411pmat. During the two years following William Howe's evacuation of Boston in early 1776, Britain focused her strategy on throttling the insurrection in the northern tier of colonial states. The plans for 1776 were largely the work of William Howe and Colonial Secretary George Germain, both of whom agreed that nothing would undermine the rebellion more quickly than a decisive battlefield victory. It would also be a profound psychological impact upon America. The chart illustrates the movement of Admiral Richard Howe's fleet to gain control of the river, showing attacks on Fort Mercer and Fort Mifflin. Bookseller Inventory # 000411
