A new and correct plan of the town of Boston
- A new and correct plan of the town of Boston
As an example of late 18th-century British journalistic cartography, this is a reduced version of Page's original map of Boston. Using pictorial symbols, it shows Charlestown in ruins following the British burning of the town during the Battle of Bunker Hill. The major focus of the map, however, is Boston, which was occupied by the British at the beginning of the Revolutionary War. This simplified map emphasizes the city's streets, wharves, and fortifications.
