Attack on Fort Redbank or Mercer October 1777
This action was where a Hessian force attacked an American fort held by troops from Rhode Island. It was part of the Philidelphia campaign.
The American left was quite until the close of the game where their light gun held back the Hessians, until their Jagers began to snipe at the infantry and gun crews.
And the Hessians rush the battery capturing the final gun, adding another trophy to their list of laurels.
The remains of the American outer defences. The Crown forces blasted these aside, rather then charge straight in like their historical counter parts.
My final black powder game for 2014. Happy New Year.
