Action at Skype's Creek pt 1
A better shot of the battlefield prior to the American landing in support of their oppressed brethren in Upper Canada. Two companies of regulars plus one landing party of sailors were allocated to land on the beach in front of the stone house, while two more companies of regulars ware to land upstream (to the left) of the bridge. Defenders included a company of Kings foot in the stone house, a half company in a redoubt by the bridge and a siege gun in the battery. reinforcements could be expected to arrive from he north (along the road to the right of the house) and south (along the road to the bridge) with Indians rumoured be in the woods. I had two more companies of regulars plus three of militia on the home shores ready to cross when the battery was silenced.
