The crown begins to form up.

 British Light Infantry file through a small wood which the American militia hasn't fortified well.

the Americans await the crowns advance.

The British advance was very fast. The Americans fired about two volleys. 
The Brunswickers and Crown forces advanced and blasted volleys.
The only crown casualties were when the Americans sent their riflemen out to take out the Hessian artillery.

The Crown forces then flanked the Americans. The riflemen  were taken out first, then the left flank which was the American militia.
