The author has selected only those maps containing military information. Such maps, he observes, are distinguished by the inclusion of symbols to indicate troop deployment and lines of march. In addition, such maps are usually large scale plans of small areas. The particular map entries in this volume are arranged by theater of action (for example, New England; the Carolinas; Georgia; and others) and then chronologically within each theater. In cases where several engagements occurred in the same area, the maps are ordered chronologically.
In describing the maps, Mr. Nebenzahl has followed the principles outlined in the Anglo American Cataloging Rules. This includes the following information: 1( title, authority statement, imprint; 2) size; 3) analytcal note, that is, an indication of whether the map being described is part of any other work; 4) scale; 5)note on source of title, authority statement, or imprint; 6) physical description; 7) cartographc information; 8) additional names; 9) contents; 10) sources and bibliographic history; 11) references; 12) variants; 13) location of copy desribed; and, 14) military information. This work includes not only maps of the battle plans for the thirteen colonies, but also the relavant maps for Canadian, West Indian, and European engagements.
