The British start the battle with three brigades of infantry, deployed around two redoubts which protect the British right flank. They are to advance and carry out a "reconnaissance in force", push back any rebel forces they meet and clear the way for a general British advance. To their front and right flank are large areas of woodland, no enemy troops are visible. With the rebel forces hidden I took the part of Burgoyne and decided that Fraser (on the right) would cover the flank of Von Reisdel's Hessians who were to advance towards the gap in the woodland. On the left Able's brigade were to cover Von Reisdel's other flank. I had guns in the redoubts and decided that it would be prudent to post one battalion in each, 'just in case'.
