Notes:
This plan shows about half the line, including the point of attack. The Rebel works are laid down from reconnoissances [sic] made immediately after the evacuation, and are correctly, but very incompletely represented, owing to want of time for sketching minor details.-Our works of siege, including the approaches in the ravines of Wormley Creek, are accurately shown. Redoubts being denoted by letters, and batteries by numbers.
Contains a list of the "proposed armament of batteries."
Indicates headquarters of Generals McClellan, Porter, Woodbury, and Heintzelman, houses, names of residents, roads, drainage, vegetation, and relief by hachures and spot heights.
