17 Juin 1775, près de Charlestown


Thomas Gage:




Les dés sont jetés...

Les rebelles se sont retranchés dans la presqu'île de Charlestown, ce n'est donc plus un combat d'escarmouche qu'ils cherchent.

Nous allons donc les affronter en bataille rangée.
Jusqu'alors, ils ont toujours évité ce genre de combat, ou bien se sont enfuis après quelques échanges de tirs ou confrontés à une charge à la baïonnette.
C'est pour nous l'occasion de leur infliger une défaite retentissante.







Ils ont amélioré une redoute que nous avions construite puis abandonnée, sur Breed's Hill.
Et construit une clôture au nord de cette colline jusqu'à la mer.

Notre flotte pourrait nous permettre de débarquer près de l'isthme qui relie la presqu'île au continent, mais cela nous prendrait du temps, trop de temps.

Nous allons débarquer près de Moulton s hill, celle ci masquant nos troupes car ces rebelles ont du canon, voyez vous ça.


TOUR  1




Nous avons débarqué près de mille hommes, et nous avons commencé à avancer vers Breed s Hill,
leurs canons nous ont causé quelques pertes.

La bataille a commencé ...

TURN 2




British troops avance in line towards the rebels ' positions.




Meanwhile the officers carry on  the landing from the ships near Morton s Hill .




The rebels , bewildered , see the Mighty forces of the King Georges III landing ...


TURN 3





The rebels behind the rail fence deliver a vicious volley fire which breaks the grenadiers and the Breed s hill cannons fire rough grape shot .
Our troops are broken before firing at all !




TURN 4





The broken grenadiers withdraw and line fusiliers take their position, new régiments envelopt Breed s Hill by the East and the South.




Turn 5  









They assault Breed s Hill in a magnificent style !
Walking in rythmn with the sound of drums and fifers
No firing , just cold steel ...





The rebels fire when we get at the thirty yards, dropping to the ground  officers and privates, the survivors push their charge with their leveled bayonets, revengeful...



The Minutemen can't reload and  they are no match  when we come to close combat...it becomes a Killing ground,
the west part of Breed s Hill is taken !

Some rebels flee away...the others  lie to the ground.
We need some rally , two thirds of our storming party are broken.






Because in front of our exhausted fusiliers,  rises the Breed s Hill redoubt, with cannon .
They are surprisingly very calm inspite of of our Copps Hill Battery and Fleet bombardment...
and ready to fight us, to the death...

TURN 6



Clinton leads a landing party just east of Charlestown, 600 men, with 200 marine troops.
He wants to envelop Breed s hill by the South and southwest, instead of pursuing a costly frontal assault.
The small boats rescue the wounded back to Boston, the officers first , of course.











Howe and Abercronbie rally their troops meanwhile the régiments just north of them assault the breed s Hill redoubt.

The cannon s grape shots blow apart one third of our men, but the others charge the earthworks, enter the redoubt and melee the defenders, Killing many militias.

But a reserve gun fires point blank fire disrupting our red coated soldiers, the minutemen, lead by mad men leaders   fight like devils



Our soldiers try to flee this hellish ground but scaling up the scaling up these earthworks to safety is too much for them, hunted by a mob in fury.
It s an ugly slaughter.




The Copp s Hill battery and the fleet bombard again the redoubt ...to no effect.








TURN 7








Breed s Hill is reinforced by some minutemen, Prescott, handsomely  dressed in a blue uniform, speaks to each man, the redoubt is the key point of the battle, Here , they can bleed the brits to death because in open terrain they could'nt stand the ground in front of the King s elite  infantrymen.
It s the battle of his life...and, may be... of his death.



TURN 8






Our troops assault by the  South ridge











they are received with grapeshot and point blank range musket fire, the rebels seems to fire as fast as they can, half of our veterans are casualties, the survivors fall back in a rout.

But Clinton assault by the southwest with 100 regulars and 200 marines.

The Prescott s men realise they are ammo low, few patriots dared came to the redoubt s rescue with ammo, and their continuous musket fire spent most of their remaining powder.












Clinton loses one third of his men but scales the earthworks facing low defensive fire, and  storms the redoubt with cold steel.





Prescott and a hundred survivors escape a certain death retreating by the small western redoubt open passage.






The second part of Clinton landing party take position on the South part of the redoubt.

The rebels have lost their strongpoint, and their morale is very low, but our troops have sustained too much casualties and nearly exhausted.





"One more effort, gentlemen ! These battlefield is ours !"
