The battle begins
Continental soldiers watch as British troops fire at the front line of American militia. The militia were ordered to fire twice, then break formation. Since militia were not professional soldiers but citizens called out to assist the army in time of need, how well they obeyed orders depended on their captain and their training. Some ran without firing a shot, while others stayed and died where they stood.
