The January 8 British plan proved easier conceived than to execute. Due to numerous delays, the attack did not start on time. About dawn, a rocket soared above the British lines near the woods on you right, followed by another rocket from their position near the river. These signals to attack were answered almost instantly by a shot from the American artillery. Major general Gibbs column gave three cheers, and the advance guard on both flanks moved in close order toward the rampart.

When the British attacked, the field was covered with fog. Major general Pakenham probably hoped this would give him back some of the advantage he had lost to delays. Unfortunately for British plans, a breeze came up and the fog broke, exposing the British 650 yards from the American line.
