This atlas shows all of the battles between the British and the Americans in the south during the Revolutionary War between the years 1776 and 1781. The different colors of the arrows represent movements by the British and American armies during this time period in the war. There are also miniature sparks on the map that represented victories by either army. The cartographer even wanted to include movements by the separate armies by water as well. He or she really sought to prove to the viewer of the map that there were some brutal battles between the Americans and British in the southern region of the Americas.
