|The British players.|
Today, day two, the players arrived to see that new units were entering the fight. Much to the alarm of Washington's men, two brigades were entering the table smack into the rear of their line. It didn't look good.
But when matters come down to how the dice are falling things can take some strange turns. There is no question that day two belonged to the Americans. Most surprising of all was the performance of the lowly American militia against some Hessian grenadiers. Beyond that, a Guards battalion was routed as was one of British grenadiers. The Yankees left for the day with their chests full of pride for their successes. The British took courage in knowing that tomorrow will be a new day, and there are still units that have yet to arrive.
