During the early afternoon, the Continental and British Armies were stalemated as they cannonaded each other across Spotswood Middle Brook. Major General Greene then appeared on this hill with four artillery pieces and began bombarding the British. Caught in a crossfire from the Continental guns, the British were forced to pull back.

The British artillery withdrew, then the British infantry withdrew as quickly as their troops could be collected. General Washington sent men forward to harass the retreating enemy. When the British counterattacked, the Continental artillery drove them back a final time, giving the Continental Army a major psychological and political victory.
