Historical Background

Sterling, Stephan and Sullivan divisions, on Washington’s right, could not hold against the steady attack of Cornwallis’ men. When ordered, Greene quickly moved and deployed his troops into line.,which allowed the shaken troops to pass through their ranks and rally. At the same time, Wayne and Armstrong were fighting a running withdrawal against Knyphausen’s attack. Although confident of victory at the start, Washington had been outwitted and under the cover of darkness the Continental Army retreated toward Chester.
The stage is set. The battle lines are drawn and you are in command. The rest is history?
