Description:

Map of the Siege of Charleston showing American & British positions, naval forces & prominent landowner’s property. The Siege of Charleston was one of the major battles of the American Revolutionary War. Near the end of the War, having suffered major losses in the North, the British began to shift their strategic attention towards the American Southern Colonies. After about six weeks of siege, Continental Army Major General Benjamin Lincoln surrendered about 5,000 personnel to the British. It was the biggest loss of troops suffered by the Continental Army in the war. The British consequently remained in control of Charleston until forced out by the imminent signing of the Treaty of Paris in 1782.
