A map of the encampment of the Allied army at Terheijden from 22 May 1746. War of the Austrian Succession (1740-48). Oriented with east to top.

A detailed topographical map showing roads, settlements, drainage, marshes and the extended lines of encampments of the Allied army to the north of Breda from May 1746. This map gives more information than RCIN 730042: the detail is less generalised and the disposition of troops in relation to settlements and field fortifications, and the greater and more particular identification of ‘goings’, suggests that this map has been made on the basis of field observations.

This map was drawn up at Wagenberg (51°39'54"N 04°44'55"E), where the Hanoverian, Austrian and Hessian troops were encamped. The troop rectangles are coloured according to nationality: English (red), Hanoverian (yellow), Austrian (green), Dutch (blue), Hessian (grey).
