Blue Oranda | Carassius auratus
(by JobK)

This is an original battle plan drawn up after the Battle of Bunker Hill. The map was made by Thomas Hyde-Page who was serving as aide-de-camp to General Howe. 
Hyde-Page was actually wounded in the battle severely enough to receive a pension for it. He had a long career as a cartographer, eventually becoming cartographer to the king and even being knighted, in addition to performing many duties as an engineer.
