Upon the first turn, the Americans advanced down the road towards the ravine. True to history, the Mohawks opened fire before the full American force moved to their position. The Mohawks charged which put to flight 3/4 of the American force. The Kings Royal Yorkers then advanced with the bayonet and opened up with volley firing. The American militia did their best to withstand the Loyalist fire, but in the end, the entire column was destroyed.
