This map, a copy of which appeared in George Washington's personal collection, was printed in early September 1775 - just three months after the Battle of Bunker Hill. The main map shows the march of soldiers through central Massachusetts, northern Connecticut, southern New Hampshire and Rhode Island to Cambridge. Washington's entourage - complete with cannons - approaches from the west, and their skirmish in Concord is marked on the map by two crossed swords. The Battle of Bunker Hill is detailed in the bottom left, while the Boston Harbor islands are illustrated in the top right portion.
