Sketch of the Battle of Hobkirks Hill, near Camden.

17 3/8 x 11 ½ inches, Lightly toned, mounted on linen (as issued?), else excellent.

A very scarce, contemporaneous Revolutionary War battle plan of an engagement in the South that occurred in the waning years of the war.  Fought in the piney sand hills north of Camden, SC, the battle was typical of those involving the effective American general, Nathanael Greene.  Although it was “won” by the British under Lord Rawdon, his casualties were so high that he was eventually forced to retreat to Charleston.  Several similar encounters wore down and eventually defeated Cornwallis’ army in the South.
