Label:Published three years after the adjacent map by Edward Fage, this work closely corresponds to the version of the battle presented in the earlier map. The only major difference is the absence of the line of sunken vessels of f the shore of Gloucester Point, illustrated in Fage's map.

This plan of Yorktown and Gloucester was published in William Faden's 1793 "Atlas of Battles of the American Revolution."
