A colored map of the area from Chesapeake Bay & Norfolk, Virginia down to Cockspur Lighthouse in Georgia. Depicts many towns, villages, rivers & mountains. Locates Albemarle & Pamlico Sounds, "Ocracock" Inlet, Cape Lookout, Cape Fear, Hilton Head and Savannah along the coast. Marshall prepared this map to illustrate the southern theater of the American Revolutionary War. Towards the end of the War, having suffered major losses in the Northern Colonies, the British began to shift their strategic attention towards the American Southern Colonies. Between 1778 and 1779, the British seized control of several important southern centers including Savannah and Charleston. Backed by a strong loyalist presence, the British where able to maintain control of the primary strategic points in the Southern Colonies until the end of the war in 1783.
