I just finished reading a book entitled The Battle of Brooklyn 1776. It is not a long book but covers the entire battle and i replete with maps that show the positions of the protagonists overlaid on the major roads of the time i.e. The Flatbush Road. The best part is it describes the battle action is terms of where it occurred with reference to today's streets or places ie. Greenwood Cemetery, etc. Where I lived on Flatbush Ave many Hessian troops were deployed and then moved up to The Bedford Road (Bedford Ave now).
