"Our approaches are going on but slowly owing to the want of men to dig."
General Nathanael Greene

Early in the siege Greene set up a roation to relieve the exhausted sappers. One team dug while another returned to camp to fashion gabions (large baskets filled with earth) or gather wood for fascines (large bundles of sticks and branches) to fortify trench walls.
