In 1781, Dr. Walter Bennett witnessed the battle of Guilford Court House in North Carolina. This map shows Lord Charles Cornwallis leading the outnumbered British forces to a victory against Major General Nathanael Greene. However, the battle cost Cornwallis more than a quarter of his men, and he was forced to withdraw from the Carolinas.
