Saratoga Campaign: Battle of Oriskany August 6, 1777
The first volley destroyed two militia brigades. American Riflemen seeing the militia fall have begun to panic and are halting the advance.
The battle continued with the Mohawks charging the American militia who surprisingly stood their ground and fought back! With the Mohawk casualties adding up, the Loyalists began to use fire and advance on the Americans, who eventually fell back under withering fire.
Johnson's men held the field.
