dc.description.abstractHistoric plan showing the military Fort Erie and surrounding forested area. North is oriented to the right. Lake Erie, although not labelled, is located east of Fort Erie. The military Fort Erie is shown with the two barracks in red ink. Multiple other buildings line the banks of the Niagara River, however only the wharf is labelled. Snake Hill is shown at south and forested land is shown surrounding the fort. Sections of the plan are labelled with letters which correlate to the reference key index located in the top right corner of the map. References indicate that some sections of the plan refer to military action during the War of 1812, including; “Entrenchments thrown up by the Enemy connecting Fort Erie & Snake Hill”, and “Abbatis made by the Enemy round 1st (?) positions.” Some portions of the key are illegible. The plan is signed: “Position the 8th Aug. 1814 Php. Hughes (?) Rl. Eng.” Text written in the bottom right corner reads: “With a letter to Lt. Genl. Mann dated Montreal 7 Oct. 1814”. Relief is shown by hachures.
