> reasonable extent, and to have the infantry and
> riflemen shoot their cartridge boxes empty. The
> British troops will push the Americans off the battle
> field at the point of the bayonet. The Americans will
> counter attack, only to be pushed away a second time.
> Native American forces will overcome an American
> cannon crew allowing British commanders to turn the
> American left, a key point in the battle . Native
> American forces of both sides will attack infantry
> along flanks and withdraw into the woodlines.
> The battle is designed to allow the reenactor to be
