The American second line of defense stood in position here.About sunrise,the British appeared. The militia,though not trained to stand against massed British bayonets,fought well and shot with deadly effect.

"At first it was pop, pop, pop [the sound of the rifles,] and then the whole volley. It seamed like one sheet of flame from right to left."
