It was just an ordinary patrol. Five British infantrymen moving through the countryside as part of a foraging expedition. But it quickly went awry. Musket fire erupts through the forest as local militia seize this opportunity to harass King George's redcoats.
The soldiers of the 80th Regiment withdraws to a nearby hill and does their best to hold the militia at bay. As they continue, the militia begins to encircle them.
It is clear to the corporal that they cannot hold out much longer against the numerically superior militia. His only hope is that the other units in the foraging party will hear the musketry and come to his assistance.
