Plan of the BATTLE of WEISSEMFELS; between the King of Prussia on one side, & the Combined Armies of France & the Empire on the other November 5th, 1757
A interesting copper engraved plan of the 18th century Battle of Weissenfels during the Seven Years War. Related text describing plan and battle included in the text. Plan is highly detailed. This imposed batter between Russia's General Witt. There is a large split in the plan due to the scanning procedure. The plan details garrison, artilery placement, number of squads in each cavalry, army of the Prince of Hilburyhausen, the march of the King of Prussia, and specific roadways.
A legend describing the action is available on the opposite page. The scale bar is in English Miles and paces, and there is no graticule. It is only loosely georefenced at the moment until more research on the battle can be conducted as pertaining to its orientation, and to do justice to the pivotal battle.
