An outline sketch map of the encampments of the Allied army in Hesse-Cassel in 1760. Seven Years War (1756-63). Oriented with north to top. 

The positions and dates of the camps shown for 1760 (spelling as in original) are: Fitzlaer 20 May; Frilendorf 24 June; Neustadt 25 June; Ziegenheim 26 June; Saxenhausen 10 July; Wolfshagen 25 July; [Warburg] 31 July; near Statberg 8 August; Corbeck-Bune-Borkholt 29 August.

This is another example, in a different hand, of RCINs 733011 and 733012 and shows almost the same information. The encampments at Wildungen, Hohenkirchin, Kalle, Warburg and Geismar are not named but have been drawn in the right position.
