The four American brigades were deployed as follows, two in White Plains, one on Chatterton's Hill and the fourth, a small militia brigade, in front of the hill to delay the anticipated British attack. As usual, we used the Patriots and Loyalists rules. The British were in three brigades. Brown's, the largest was on the left, tasked with capturing Chatterton's Hill. Clinton's small brigade was in the centre and would render assistance where required. Archer's Brigade was to occupy the attention of the Americans in White Plains and then pin them in place whilst Brown and Clinton moved on their flank.

This was where our first day's gaming came to a close. The British had made progress on both flanks, but the American position was just about holding. Would the British, having taken casualties, still have the strength to carry the hill and town?
