Historical Background

On August 22, Washington received word that the British had landed on Long Island. His troops were deployed on the high ground in front of Brooklyn Heights, hoping to inflict heavy casualties on the British before his troops fell back to the main defenses. On the British side, Clinton was ordered to take an elite force and make a night march around the Continental left flank.
While Clinton made the night march, Grant’s British troops would attack the Continentals to hold them in position and distract them from the main army coming around the flank. 
The stage is set. The battle lines are drawn and you are in command. The rest is history?

Correlyou House should be the Cortelyou House
