Text below the title describes the map as follows: “Sketch of the Military Reserves extending from Chippewa to the debouché of the Niagara River into Lake Ontario, distinguishing in yellow such part of “the One Chain” in width on the top of the bank, as may be surrendered to the Provincial Government: the remainder tinted red being actually required for purposes of defense. As called for by the Military Secretary’s letter, dated 16th, May 1850.” Signed; R.I. Pilkington and Henry Vavasour. North is oriented to the right where the Niagara River meets Lake Ontario. Both the British and the American sides of the river are shown. Niagara and Stamford are divided into lots, some of which are numbered. At the mouth of the river Fort Mississagua and Butlers Barracks are shown on the British side as well as Fort Niagara on the American Side. Noted is the location for a proposed suspension bridge from Queenston to Lewiston. Another suspension bridge is marked closer to Niagara Falls.
