The Americans have cause to celebrate this battle as part of the founding of their country. But I can only see how men who were far from home, celebrating Christmas were attacked by an army which was about to disband due to yearly enlistments.
Imagine, being far from home, in a land where most of the people didn't speak your language, who didn't want you there, your trying to stay warm, and remember you loved ones back in your home country over a cup of wine and if you were lucky some warm food in your belly.
That's what the Hessians were facing.
The Americans were just about to run out of troops as they had all signed up for a year. Their uniforms were threadbare, their uniforms and equipment in tatters,
Yet it was the ragtaggle Americans who won this battle.
This battle was replayed on Christmas Day, 2012 in Japan.
American units: Virginia troops:
Pennsylvania troops: Rifles
New Hampshire troops:
New York troops:
Crown forces: 16th Light Dragoons (role to see if they will flee)
The 16th Light dragoons actually held the line for a bit, but eventually concentrated musketry hammered them away. The Hessians were unable to make any firing line and were mown down by the Americans. All of the Hessians officers were killed, it was a complete victory for the Americans.
